I thought this recipe was delicious and super simple! I did add some chopped turkey meat and leftover veggies from the fridge to make it a one pot meal. Thanks for sharing!

I found it hard to detect the garlic and ginger flavors in the couscous, even though I followed the recipe precisely. Sorry, but I was not a fan, and won't make this again.

This needs a bit more flavoring in order to get more stars. I recommend using vegetable broth instead of chicken and adding some onion or shallot to fill in the flavor. The cooking method was ...

Simple but a tiny bit bland. Added Soy-sauce to liven it up and was quite tasty!

The first time I tried this recipe, I didn't have couscous on hand, so I used jasmine rice instead. I just upped the chicken broth to 2 cups and cook time to 15-20 minutes, and it was delicious!...
