Such a great blend of veggies and couscous. Use it as a light main course or side dish!

Sweet, We loved this combination of flavors with our cous cous. Thanks so much for posting. I used leftover carrots from my Recipe #98509 and some leftover peas that I'd already spiced up with olive oil and s/p. This was a great side dish to baked catfish fresh from the pond.
