    This was a very good couscous recipe. I love Israel couscous over the regular any day, and it really didn't specify which kind of couscous so went with my favorite. I thought it would be too many onions for the amount of couscous so I only put in 1 cup and that was plenty. Of course I couldn't find just frozen peas..like what's with that??? So had to use just a mix blend of frozen veggies...was thinking of just plucking out the peas....but thought not, so just went ahead and used the mixed veggies and it was really delicious. I also for extra flavor used chicken broth and not just plain water, gives it a nicer flavor. I too had to add a bit more liquid while it was cooking but that wasn't a problem. This is a great recipe cause it really is quick to put together with normal ingredients on hand with a great end result. We loved it, thanks for sharing dicentra....

    A simple couscous recipe that makes a nice change from the usual version I make. I followed the recipe apart from using vegetable stock rather than water for extra flavour, because I otherwise find couscous a little bland. I also had to use a little more liquid (about 1/3-1/2 cup) than stated as my couscous absorbed the stated amount too quickly and wasn't properly done. I'm looking foward to having the left-overs cold as part of my salad for lunch tomorrow. thanks for sharing.
