I scaled this back for 2 serves which as side was just enough for 3 of us. I used young fresh silverbeet fresh from the garden (1 1/2oz finely shredded) and allowed extra chicken stock to compensate for the liquid that would come from the frozen spinach, I used 1 cup but in reality should have only used 3/4 as my couscous ended up a bit soggy otherwise made as directed and was enjoyed with our Oven Roasted Salmon With Balsamic Sauce. Thank you KittyKitty, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.

Very mild in flavor. I liked it. DH did not care for it.

Really good recipe and fast too. I have children that always turn up their nose when we have couscous. I'm proud to say that I have converted one of them. A fast and unique side dish. Many thanks!!!
