“If you can boil water then you can make this! A great way to liven up plain couscous especially if you love roasted red peppers as much as i do. You may have to go to a specialty grocery to find the nicoise olives (i havent looked for them in a regular grocery- they may have them im not sure) Anyway good luck and happy cooking.”
