Healthy, quick, easy, and tasty who could ask for anything more? Made as written and thought it made a very nice side combining both whole grains and veggie with practically no fat. Might add just a smidgen more cumin next time. Thanks so much for the post.

I made this as listed except used less oil and onion instead of shallots. The couscous was nice and fresh; I could have used a bit more flavour, perhaps some lemon would work in it?

Very delicious and easy to make - we love couscous and this is a great combination of veggies and seasonings. Makes a great presentation with the red and green colors. I served this dish along side a vegetarian enchilada dish. Will definitely keep this on my short list of go-to couscous recipes. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, January, 2012.
