  • i liked it alot. having lived in Louisiana it was different but the flavors were there. i added cayene instead of cajun seasoning. I exchanged tofu for shrimp. merely because i needed to use the tofu and had no shrimp handy. this is actually my breakfast today cause i woke up wanting couscous! - 6/1/12

  • Yummm. Good alternative to white rice. Added more seasoning at the end, 1/2 tbsp of adobo, 1/2 tsp of onion powder and a dab more of cajun to give it more flavor. - 11/30/08

  • A KEEPER! Fixed 11/19/08. Needed to adjust < to two servings, etc. We are South Beach healthy eaters. So I used your volume of veggies and added left over turnip. Used only 1 serving of couscous for 2. I didn't have Cajun on hand, Used oregano & Mrs. Dash SW blend. - 11/19/08

  • I really liked this recipe, but I would add more spices next time. I didn't use all the cajun spice, I was afraid it would be too hot. - 11/12/08
