    HokiesMom's Note:

    From Light and Tasty magazine, Dec. 2004..submitted by D. Anderson. I have to admit, I've never tried couscous because it always looks so dry when I've seen it. I'm posting this recipe in hopes someone will review it and tell me if this one will be different. I did not see anything similar on this site. I'm hoping this will get me going in the right direction with a healthy alternative for side dishes. (Time to make is a guess as I've not made this before but it does include the time to chill the couscous).

      Made for ZWT for the Golden Gourmets. This was really good. I made the entire recipe and have been taking it for lunch this week since I am the only one in the house that will eat couscous. Very light, refreshing lunch.

      A lovely couscous recipe that I know I'll be making again. With the exception of the hot pepper sauce which I omitted (zero tolerance of anything hot and spicy), and the addition of some thinly sliced mushrooms and a sprinkling of thyme, I made this exactly to the recipe. Great blend of flavours and textures. We particularly liked the mandarin segments and the slivered almonds in this. Couscous recipes can be so bland, so I'm really glad to have found this one, HokiesLady! :) Thank you for sharing it. Made for Gimme 5!
