IntroductionSteaming couscous with a can of chopped tomatoes adds flavor and color without any extra work. You could also stir in some edamme or sauted tofu for an extra protien burst.

In the instructions it says "add tofu mixture". What tofu mixture? That was the first time I saw it mentioned. - 7/7/08

In the intro for the recipe, it says you could add sauted tofu if you wanted to - I should have said add edamame, tofu or other protien substitute
This looks so yummy- think I might add some chick peas to up the protein and make a complete meal. - 6/1/08

I like to stir in Edamame - which also rounds it out. I am not much into tofu, but a lot of people like that in it, too.
