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.
