I love couscous and was excited to try a new version. I'm glad I did, because this is delicious.
I did make some changes - extra clove of garlic, vege stock instead of chicken, fresh baby spinach, pine nuts instead of pecans and I added some fresh basil at the end.
Delicious :)

My husband went crazy over this! We love couscous to begin with, and love spinach, so the two mixed together with the garlic and onions and pecans was just delicious! I used fresh spinach instead of frozen - so I used two Dole bags of fresh baby spinach (6oz each) so it cooked down to about the same size as a 10oz frozen package. Just a note, when toasting your pecans, make sure to keep an close eye on them. They can burn pretty quickly if you don't be careful, which I learned the hard way. Loved the nuttiness this added to the dish though. We will definitely be making this again!

What a fantastic side dish. I served this with fish last night and we loved it. I almost skipped the pecans but decieded to use and am so glad I did, they add a nice nuttyness to the dish. (duh...lol) My kids ate alot of this, and I loved seeing them eat the spinach. Thank you so much for the great side, we will make again.
