1/1 Photo of Whole Wheat Couscous With Plums, Goat Cheese and Fresh Mint
Delightful mix of flavors from Prevention magazine. Although I submitted the cooking directions for the couscous as given, please check the directions on your particular package. The cooking directions on my box were different so I followed the package instructions, rather than the recipe, for cooking the couscous. The balsamic vinegar does darken the dish, so use white balsamic if you prefer. I have never used it, though, so I am unsure what taste difference there would be.
