Real Simple magazine, June, 2007. I don't want to lose this. Couscous could be replaced with brown rice or barley for a healthy whole-grain lift.

Fused this with Caribbean-Style Rice Pilaf because there was no couscous in Mrs. Hubbard's cupb'ard! Left out the cilantro because we don't care for it, AND my DD killed the shrimp that was planned for this meal, so we used chicken breasts instead (cut into shrimp-like pieces) and I added some "fish sauce" (shrimp flavored) which gave it a good smell! Hubby loved the sugar-snap peas. Made while gallivanting the globe with the *Groovy GastroGnomes for ZWT 5*
This is tasty! It's fresh and light, but full of gingery flavor. I didn't have cilanto, so I used basil instead, and turned out fine. Made for Spring PAC 08. Thanks, Jackie.
