Lentils Couscous Recipe

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Hommus

I made this recipe the other day, instead of using rice , I used Couscous, and it was really good. Basically it is cooked the same as the lentils and Rice Recipe (Mujadarah) only subsituting couscous for Rice.

Doesn't have much flavor. I'd add more spice.
