Couscous and Veg

Submitted by: TNUNCHUK

Introduction

Good for Side Dish. Lemon Juice gives a little flavour to the couscous, which can be a little bland otherwise. Feta Cheese would be optional for a little more flavour. Good for Side Dish.

    This was my first attempt at couscous and it turned out amazing! I also went with the advice to only use 2tbs of lemon juice and it added the perfect amount of zing! I added in the feta and it was perfect - even my 10 and 8 year old sons liked it! - 7/18/10

  • I only used 3 T lemon juice after reading the previous recommendations. I also only used 1T basil. I used, zucchini, spinach, and tomatoes for my veggies, and about 1/3 cup lowfat feta. Turned out tasty - 2/9/09

  • I completely agree with the person below that there is WAY too much lemon juice in this recipe. Next time- I will use 1-2 T instead of a 1/2 cup. I also used fresh garlic and added some other veggies. Thanks for sharing. - 7/13/08

  • I thought this recipe was pretty good, but there is WAY too much lemon juice. It is a great way to get some veggies in!! I will make it again and use less lemon juice...even my husband thought it was okay!! - 7/7/08

  • I love it and will make it very often. It is quick and simple. The only change I made was that I used fresh garlic. You can use any vegs that you have on hand. - 5/25/08
