Golden Couscous

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by breezermom

The "golden" comes from the turmeric as well as the corn and yellow bell peppers! This can be served warm as a side or at room temp as a salad.

Wow, if there are any holidays where yellow food is called for this is your entree! It is also really tasty and was perfect with our seafood dinner.
