      Because I used Israeli couscous, I had to adjust cooking directions. First I brought the broth to the boil, added the Israeli couscous, butter, carrots and peas. Covered and simmered 10-12 minutes until broth evaporated. Stirred in the lemon juice and peel. Easy, delicious and we'll be making this again very soon. Reviewed ZWT 6.

      Nice quick dish. I had to replace some of the couscous with bulghur, I didn't realize I was running so short on couscous. That sub worked out fine, I just used about 1 cup of grain overall instead of 1 1/4. I used veggie broth and Earth Balance instead of butter. It was nice and light and would be a great accompaniment to so many things. I served it for lunch over a bed of lightly sauteed spinach, garlic & almonds.
