    Coucous for breakfast - who knew? This was very tasty, rich and creamy. I used pecans because that's what I had on hand. I think other dried fruits, like blueberries or cranberries, would be great as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    This made a most delicious lunch yesterday. I used rice couscous, dry almond milk and brown rice syrup and it turned out perfectly. Definitely another keeper! Thanks for posting.

    Love it when breakfast taste like a treat and this meets the bill. Made as written using whole wheat couscous and Splenda brown. The powdered milk gives a rich creaminess to this. A great way to start a cold day. Thanks so much for the post.

    I'm a great fan of couscous in all it's varieties and incarnations. This is a very good one. From personal choice I didn't use the milk in the recipe but had a cup on the side. I cut this recipe to 3/4 of a serving and used 1/2 a tsp of Splenda Brown Sugar and a, well, generous amount of cinnamon. Thanks Mike for a quick and yumm filled brekkie. :D

    This breakfast meal was simple as can be! Made enough for my family of three this chilly Sunday morning. I did reduce the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons and felt that it could have been reduced even further. I used whole wheat couscous, very good, thanks!
