    I really like the different mixtures of food in this recipe, I actually tried it in 'Vegan on the Cheap' and was glad it was found here to save me some work! I think the calorie count is so high because of all the couscous. I don't think you need 1 box for 4 servings, maybe 3/4 a box is more ideal. - 9/6/12
