      Terrific dish! I served this with some grilled lamb steaks and the mint was a PERFECT accompaniment. Lamb and mint is always a winner winner dinner. A very nice recipe. Two thumb ups!

      I love couscous since it's so quick and easy, and always tastes good. This recipe is no exception. I did not use the butter and only had 1 cup of stock left, but it was homemade stock, so was full of flavor - the other cup was water. I liked the addition of almonds and parsley, it added a nice touch to the finished product! Thanks! Made for Beverage Tag.

      What a nice change of pace from plain ol' rice. The cinnamon makes this just a bit different and the crunch from the almonds and fresh herbs really add to the flavor. My BF doesn't like the texture of cous cous so for once I'll get some leftovers for lunch! Lucky Me!

      I made this to go with Mommy's Lemon-Herb Butter-Basted Chicken. It was wonderful! I used whole wheat couscous because that's what I had on hand, and it had a real nutty aromatic scent to it. Was a fairly simple and delicious side dish that I'll no doubt make again.

      I loved this. I had never cooked couscous before, and I'm glad I chose this recipe to start. It was very simple and delicious. Served along side Tri-tip and a salad. What a great side dish. Will definitely make this one again ;) Thanks for sharing MD..... ~V

      Very easy and a tasty accompaniment to a spicy Moroccan Meatball and Lentil Bake With Company!. The flavor was subtle, but the peas and almonds added nice body to regular couscous. I used about half the amount of peas called for. Thanks for sharing!

      This is very tasty. I love the cinnamon and mint. A slight mistake occurred in mine. I grabbed a bag from the nut drawer and had tossed in walnut bits before I noticed that I had the wrong one lol. It certainly didn't hurt it any, if fact I quite liked the walnuts in it. This recipe is super fast to make and not unhealthy (I skipped the butter and honestly didn't miss it).This was today's lunch but, of course, it would be a wonderful, easy side to a meat entrée. Lovely recipe.
