Balsamic Tomato Couscous

Balsamic Tomato Couscous created by Kree6528

We had a potluck to attend where we had been asked to bring a side dish. I was craving couscous though I knew few (if any) of my friends would be willing to try it. Never mind, I moved forward! This is a slight adaptation of one I found in one of my favorite cookbooks "500 almost fat free pasta recipes." And truth be told, I brought very little home and got asked for the recipe!

    Didnt actually like the sound of this but had all the ingredients in the cupboard and though..hell why not?!?! Turned out superb, flavourful.. could probably do with a little less balsamic vinegar as its very vinegary i would suggest 2tbps.. but overall a good 5/5.. kids and hubby loved it.. had it with barbeque pork chops...YUMMY

    The first day, this was OK. Leftovers the second were ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLY EXCELLENT!!!! I used the Israeli Pearl (large) couscous and a low acid orange tomato. Craving more as I write this......thank you for posting, Ladypit!!!

    I haven't even put the tomatoes in yet and WOW! The flavor is amazing! Even my super picky husband liked it! I used a couscous, millet, lentil, quinoa mixture. SO good. Will definitely make again. In fact, I made a second batch for my party tomorrow because I couldn't keep my fingers out of it.

    Easy and tasty, but I'm hoping it is more flavorful cold as a salad. Made for Cooking Tag Mania 2013.
