A nice idea but for me needed some help. Way too much couscous for me.. it soaked up all the broth and came out as thick as oatmeal. Maybe that is how this "soup" is supposed to be.. just be aw...

I only say that it is OK because I'm not sure how it is supposed to be. I found it a bit too thick for my taste.
