SO HOW'D IT GO?

Yum!  I don't care to much for couscous, but I gave this dish a try and loved it!  I added some chopped tomatoes, dried basil, oregano and toasted the pine nuts.  Very good and will make again.

So easy. It was my first time using couscous and this is very good. I used walnuts instead of pine nuts and added a clove of garlic.

I love this recipe.  It's super quick and easy!  I make it quite often and have done a few different things each time and it always turns out excellent.  It's really good with chickpeas and extra scallions, pine nuts and pepper flakes.  Sometimes I'll add tomatoes if I have them too.  Oh so good!

quick and easy!  ;)b  I love it its gong to become a new "quick meal" I didn't have pine nuts, I doubled the pepper flakes and added lemon juice!

Simple, satisfying and soul-foodish!! I used frozen spinach and had to use peanuts as pine-nuts weren't available. It is definitely a new favourite! So quick to make, so good to eat. :)>>>

This was pretty good although I found out I don't like olives (!)  I'd recommend spicing it up a bit more with some more red pepper flakes, and you can never go wrong with more spinach and scallions.  Leeks might also be good.
