Whole Wheat Couscous With Plums, Goat Cheese and Fresh Mint

Whole Wheat Couscous With Plums, Goat Cheese and Fresh Mint created by GaylaJ

Delightful mix of flavors from Prevention magazine. Although I submitted the cooking directions for the couscous as given, please check the directions on your particular package. The cooking directions on my box were different so I followed the package instructions, rather than the recipe, for cooking the couscous. The balsamic vinegar does darken the dish, so use white balsamic if you prefer. I have never used it, though, so I am unsure what taste difference there would be.

    Great, easy recipe! I was out of couscous, so I used wild rice and added some of French Tart's Preserved Lemons (209590). It was a delicious combination! Thanks for sharing this!

    This is sooo good. I don't really pay attention to the proportions. Sometimes I throw in some greens like arugula. This is definetly a favorite. Good combination of sweet, herby, sour, creamy...I could probably eat this every day. And it is way too fast and easy to make.

    Oh, man, I died and went to carb heaven. Not a fan of mint so I skipped that and I found the dish sweet enough without the honey. Incredible,Gayla.
