Moroccan Couscous

READY IN: 22mins
Top Review by Laughing in the Kit

This did not turn out great for me. I cut it in half. I found that the couscous (which I have used before successfully) did not absorb the OJ/water mixture very well. Even letting it sit a little longer did nothing to stop the mushiness! So that's sad. But, the flavor also is a little too OJ centric for my taste. HOWEVER I think this could be tweaked. Maybe less liquid, and a smaller proportion of OJ. Thanks for sharing this interesting recipe has my wheels turning on how to adapt it for my tastes :)
