The flavours of sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese and fresh basil go very nicely together. The only problem I had was there it was a little lumpy, so next time I'll use a boiling vegetable stock instead of water. I also added the whole onion and garlic into the water to boil because my family doesn't like the taste of raw onions and garlic. Otherwise all three of us ate this serving for six because we really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for posting your recipe gailanng

This was very good, and a nice change of pace from my usual pilaf sides. I have been trying to incorporate more whole grains into our diet so I chose to use cooked millet in lieu of couscous, but otherwise made as written. My feta was sundried tomato and basil flavor, which was perfect here. I added more salt at the table, but otherwise this really worked for all of us (even 2 y/o DS). Next time I might add a bit of Greek seasoning just for fun. Thanks for posting! Made for 123 Hits tag.
