Good clean flavours I used parsley, sweet basil and oregeno (1/4 cu of each and then finely sliced), would have liked more onin but loved using the stock/broth to cook the couscous (I used a veggie one). I also scaled back to 3 serves and as a side it was plenty with still some left over. Thank you Sharon123 for a lovely recipe and to Annacia for her recommendation, made for I Recommend Tag Ga,me.
Delicious Sharon! I also used veg broth and fresh herbs from the garden...and of course, fresh lemon juice. When I'm short on time, this will be such a great recipe to turn to, I've almost always got the ingredients on hand. And it doesn't get much easier! For broth I use a powdered type, which tastes great but is pretty mild - so next time I'll skip the plain water and use all broth. Cheers Sharon!
This is my idea of a perfect recipe: easy instructions, simple ingredients and of course delicious! For a change of pace I substituted Israeli couscous. Vegetable broth for chicken, the PNW's famous Walla Walla onion and fresh herbs from our garden! No complaints here! thanks! cg Reviewed for Ramadan Tag 2009.
DH likes couscous and he loved this one. He asked me if there was leftover for his lunch tomorrow. I liked it but not as much as him. I liked that it was simple to make. I used chicken stock. Thanks Sharon. Made for Zaar Star Game
This couscous dish was nice, but not what I was looking for. The flavor was very mild, and I would have preferred something with a bit more flavor. If I make this again, I will up the garlic a lot, and perhaps investigate adding more seasonings.
This was my first taste of couscous and I thought it was fantastic! I really liked the flavors. I added quite a bit more lemon juice at least dbl what it called for as well as a bit more garlic. I really loved the texture too! Oh and we used chicken broth in ours.
Great side dish to indian meal
I did not really care for this too much. My husband liked it, but I think it was too herby or something. Maybe cutting down on the mint would have helped, but I don't think I'll be trying this again. Sorry.
A most amazing side dish, light, tasty, delightful. Nothing to change, add, delete, or improve on. Thank you so much for posting this.
This was great. My wife who is not a fan of couscous loved this. I thought it was delicious, and the lemon and mint really perked this dish up.
