I served this as a side dish and knew that this was going to make lots. Even that knowledge kept me moving forward without making any adjustments. Even if this was served as an entree this would make lots. I used a whole wheat couscous and vegetable broth. The texture was a little off for me. I think I would have enjoyed this better if I had used Israeli couscous. It was served with recipe #385396. Made for *Hail to the Chef's* in the Photo Forum event.
