Outstanding. I finally have a recipe for Israeli couscous that my whole family likes. Although I tweaked this recipe after the first try, just so that I could have my carbs and meat all in one for 'brown bag' lunches. I turned this into a 'not-so-kosher' Israeli couscous by adding dices honey-baked spiral ham. It's delicious.

This was delicious! We loved it and served with lemon olive chicken and pan-fried zucchini. Yum!

I loved this recipe. This was my first time making Israeli Couscous and I loved it. I liked the texture and the flavor and it's super quick to make. Will be making this again.

This would have been PERFECT had I not added the lemon juice. It makes it way too sour and overpowers the rest of the flavors. My advice is add a lot less or leave it out entirely!

This is a great recipe to use, especially when your other menu items have a lot of flavor. We made this, but did not include the Tarragon, as I did not have fresh on hand. The blend of lemon juice and fresh rosemary was wonderful and made the perfect side dish. Would definitely make again and recommend!

I liked this dish - but the rest of my family vetoed it. Will try again with the method of cooking, but experiment with different flavors.

This was my first time making israeli couscous, but we had bought some at an international grocer and decided to try it. It was delicious! This was such a simple preparation, and enjoyed by the whole family. Thanks for the recipe!

We loved this. Its simple and yummy. I left out the tarragon but added everything else. I thought the lemon juice was going to be too much but it was great. I used vegetable broth for this. I served it with Shishlik (Israeli Skewers) and a salad of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and green bell pepper dressed with EVOO, lemon juice, garlic and parsley. Thanks for posting, I'll make this again.

This was a great, and easy, recipe. I also love the texture of the Israeli/pearl couscous. I made it as written, except for eliminating the tarragon and rosemary (I realize that was largely the point of it being defined as an "Herbed Couscous, but I was serving it with an already highly spiced lamb dish - #65835)
