This was so good, I scaled it back for 5/8th cup of couscous which was plenty for 3 of us as a side. All liquid only took about 6 to 7 minutes to absorb and the colour was just fabulous (had the DM raving) though if you should want to add a litte sweetness add some sultanas or raisins (pre=-soaked) I think would be good. Thank you Queen Dana, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup Tag Game..

This is a really nice (and easy) side. I liked that it was mild flavor so it didn't "clash" with the Peanut chicken dish I served it with. Would also be very good with fish. Made for Spring 2012 PAC game.

Made half the recipe and like Rita I used tri-colored couscous...delicious! I served it with Lightened-Up Lemony Chinese Chicken#402239 and summer squash and it made for a wonderful meal. Thank you for submitting this recipe. It is one I will definately make again. Made for Zaar Alphabet Tag game.

This was a lovely side, with mild flavors that could go with just about anything! We enjoyed it with mustard salmon, but I can even see adding chickpeas and maybe olives to beef it into a vegetarian main. It was very easy to throw together, and does make quite a bit. DH thought it was really a great change of pace side dish :). Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
