      This is nice, but a bit plain. I seasoned it with a bit of salt and pepper at the end. I'm sure it would be a lot more flavourful with some sauteed or roasted bell peppers. Instead of using boiling water, I added plain water, brought it to a boil, added the couscous, stirred once, switched off the burner, covered tighly, and let it sit undisturbed for 5 minutes. It works every time, and the couscous is done just right!

      This was a very simple, quick and attractive dish. This was my first experience with couscous. I found it a bit bland. My family wasn't that impressed with it. I think, instead of using boiling water, chicken stock would give it a bit more taste. I did add some salt and pepper to it at the end. I didn't give this a 2 star because it was a 'bad dish'. It wasn't. We just haven't aquired a taste for couscous....yet. Thank you for posting.
