  • Yum! So fragrant while cooking. I didn't have couscous so I used quinoa instead and it was fabulous. Love this dish. I recalculated with my ingredients here:

  • Needed more seasoning- I added salt, almost doubled the amount of curry powder, and added a dash of cayenne. And calories are clearly off- breakdown doesn't include full quantity of ingredients! Didn't add coucous b/c not enough liquid- I think its fine w/o it. Quick and tasty, though! - 2/25/11

  • This was easy and tasty. I added some frozen cauliflower, but it's certainly the kind of recipe you can adapt to what you like and what you have on hand. - 6/21/10

  • I made this for my friends-both vegetarian and meat eaters- and it was a hit! Used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Didn't have zucchini so I added in some green peppers and carrots. Also added some red pepper flakes and Sriracha for spice. Needed more water/stock to keep from drying out. - 11/29/09

    This sounds good, but the amount of couscous is off. The carbs and cals would be a bit higher. - 11/12/08
