Herbed Israeli Couscous

"From the Culinary Institute of America. I LOVE the bigger, thicker texture of israeli couscous. Sometimes it's hard to find in local stores, this would be good with regular couscous too."

"I am a mom to 2 boys, ages 11 and 6. My youngest is a cancer survivor, so we enjoy each day given to us! You never know what can happen in your life! I have been in the loan business for over 10 years and I love it. Unfortunately, this economy has put a wrench into my awesome career. After a couple layoffs, I decided I need to do something else for awhile. I am now selling advertising, and it's different! I am thankful to have a job, so can't complain much! I love to cook. I can spend a whole Sunday in the kitchen just cooking away. I love trying new recipes (my boyfriend hates it. Lol. He likes what he likes and would be fine never trying anything new.) I never bake. I think it's because I don't measure. I am a throw-in-the-ingredients until they taste good kind of girl. I LOVE this site(actually, I am addicted to it) and am enjoying finding new things to make everyday!"

    This would have been PERFECT had I not added the lemon juice. It makes it way too sour and overpowers the rest of the flavors. My advice is add a lot less or leave it out entirely!

    Outstanding. I finally have a recipe for Israeli couscous that my whole family likes. Although I tweaked this recipe after the first try, just so that I could have my carbs and meat all in one for 'brown bag' lunches. I turned this into a 'not-so-kosher' Israeli couscous by adding dices honey-baked spiral ham. It's delicious.

    This was delicious! We loved it and served with lemon olive chicken and pan-fried zucchini. Yum!

    I loved this recipe. This was my first time making Israeli Couscous and I loved it. I liked the texture and the flavor and it's super quick to make. Will be making this again.
