“I haven't been able to find traditional couscous in my local stores, so I use the boxed instant variety. I like couscous with plenty of fresh veggies in it. I rarely add salt - the boxed couscous and Parmesan cheese adds plenty. This comes together very easily and is delicious as a side dish or a light meal.”
