    Lovely way to dress up our favorite side dish! Served with blackened tilapia and fresh green beans, our plates looked very pretty! :-) I used whole wheat couscous, left out the green peas but did use the chick-peas. My little garden is coming along nicely and I was able to harvest the parsley and basil but ran short on the mint so I supplemented it with a little dried. I thought the lemon zest really brought it all to peak flavor! Thanks for posting your recipe!

    Loved this!. It made a great quick lunch today. I used the chick peas and had to use dried herbs but it was still delicious. I had a bit of left over chicken breast that I plopped on top of the couscous after warming it. Simply wonderful. Thanks toni for a healthy lunch that was so easy to make and enjoy.

    Couscous is a quick way to finish out a meal. This was served with Recipe #196220 and the flavors complimented each other very well. I did leave off the chickpeas but other than that followed the ingredients as listed.
