*Reviewed for Zaar World Tour 3* Couscous doesn't get any easier than this! Nice and easy to prepare with great flavours. An easy versatile side dish. Thanks for another great recipe
My experience with most couscous dishes is that they are bland, and this one was no different. I used regular vegetable broth (not low sodium) instead of chicken stock because there were vegetarians at the table, the full 2 cloves of garlic and chopped cilantro/coriander. I suspect the onions lose some of their flavour sitting in the broth for 5 minutes. If there is a next time, I'd consider removing the onions and garlic from the pot before adding the broth, then stir them back in with the cilantro after the couscous has cooked.
I made this recipe last night to go with pork chops. We loved it. I used parsley since my cilantro isnt growiing yet but very good. Thank you for sharing your recipe with me.
easy & full of flavor yummm
Delicious AND easy! My annoyingly picky husband and 2 and 3 year old children ate it...and I loved it too!
A wonderful and easy recipe. The 1st time that I made couscous without it being dry and flavorless.
Recipe is a keeper.
Thanks Chef FloWer.
How have I forgotten to rate this? I've made it many times.
I love the flavor. The texture can be "too soft" for me. Which I combat by adding a handful of chickpeas or pine nuts.
Great side dish!
This was my first time making and eating couscous. I followed the recipe exactly as written (using the fresh parsley instead of the coriander) and was very pleased with the result. I really liked the chicken stock, garlic and onions in this dish. This recipe is very aptly named, it does make for a very savoury side dish. Recipenapped for the February 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.
This is a nice way to prepare couscous. Flavorful and easy to prepare. I served it with Zurie's Pork Tenderloin With Yoghurt, Mustard and Prunes.
We just loved this and felt it complimented Too Easy Oriental Chicken by Chef David04 really well and so easy to make and overall all made for a quick dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects off. Thank you Chef floWer made for Aussie/Kiei Swap #53 June 2011.
