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!

Very easy and healthy to make. I doubled the recipe and it's just the right amount for 2 servings as a main dish. I think I overdid the Tabasco ;) - make sure to add some to taste, as the cayenne already gives it a kick. I also added salt and pepper, and was able to use a whole can of corn since I doubled the recipe. I will be making this again

Like all couscous recipes easy peasy and liked the vegies that were added, the only change I would make is in step 3 to take it off the heat and let the couscous absorb the heat and I think you would get a better result. Thank you Moody, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

I doubled, used one can corn, 1/2 can diced tomatoes, Tony Chachere's More Spice for heat, and the wrong kind of couscous that you have to cook longer. It ended up tasty but kind of mushy. Probably should have cooked the couscous and then added the corn and tomatoes at the end.

We really liked this! The Tabasco and Cayenne were a very nice surprise as it left just a little kick in our mouths after the first bite. It was not overpowering at all! <br/>I used a cup of Couscous and one and a half cups of water. I was looking for a more starchy side dish, so I used a cup of Couscous and one and a half cups of water. I also put a little salt in the water while cooking the couscous and then again when I added the vegetables. <br/>This was a very pretty dish, an easy dish and very yummy!!<br/>Thank you for sharing it with us!

This was a really nice, light, healthy side dish to our chicken tonight.I doubled the recipe and added a diced zucchini, a little salt, and used cilantro instead of parsley. Nice and fresh tasting. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I added diced peppers and used chicken bullion in place of plain water. A sprinkle of white pepper and it was good to go! Thanks.

Holy cow, this is awesome!! I didn't have onions, so I used onion powder, but it was still perfect. This is my new go to couscous recipe. I have all of these ingredients on hand, and it was so quick to make. I also added some leftover soybeans to the mix. Perfect to add some extra protein. Thanks Moody for making my new favorite couscous recipe!
