Spontaneous Couscous

READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by Moody

Very quick and very easy to prepare. Originally from the Student's Vegetarian Cookbook. Can be eaten warm, or as a cold salad.

Easy and yummy! 1 serving recipes are perfect for me, since not everyone at home is as adventurous in trying out different kinds of food. I used only 1/2 cup of onions since 1 cup seemed a tad much for 1 person! I also substituted Tabasco with a green chili sauce that I had, and added 1/4 tsp of salt. This dish will be a regular with me from now on. Thanks!
