Elegant Almond Couscous

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This fast and flavorful dish would be great both as a side dish or as a vegetarian entree. Fresh vegetables, herbs, and crunchy almonds jazz up tender, fluffy couscous and make this recipe a real winner! Recipe is from Light and Tasty.
