      This was WONDERFUL!!! I am a big fan of couscous and love vegetables so this dish really hit the spot for me!! I used fresh lemon juice instead of the vinegar and that too makes all the difference in the world. I added a tad more garlic to it. This is a great dish to keep on hand in the refrigerator when the "hungries" hit or to serve as a side dish.

      As advertised: quick, tasty, healthy. I, too, used lemon juice and a bit of bottled garlic. Will make again for lunch. P.S. Gave it a 4 just because it isn't a Wowie recipe for me, but a really good one that I'll use.

      What a beautifully easy and light side dish! I altered it a little by cooking the couscous in chicken stock, used the juice from half of a large lemon, and threw in a whack of fresh parsley. It was still great the next day, slightly reheated and spruced up with a little more lemon juice. Thanks Anu, I will certainly make this again!

      I made this as written except I used a box mix of couscous that was flavored with garlic and olive oil and instead of the water, I cooked it in chicken broth. It was quite good, light and refreshing. Somehow, though, I felt like it was missing something. I added some red pepper but I would really have liked some other sort of "kick." Like I said, this was very good, but if someone figures out the extra kick let us all know! Thanks!!

      I found 1 cup of water just wasn't enough-my couscous was hard as a rock after 5 minutes and still very chewy. A bit more water fixed that. I used more lemon juice and oil as I couldn't imagine the quantities listed making much of a difference let alone providing "tang". I read the reviews and think the one saying something was missing is spot on-I think stock rather than water, and a fresh herb (mint or coriander) to finish would be good.

      This recipe was very good. I added 1 tsp coriander and 1 tsp cumin and used a juice from 1/2 a lime rather than lemon juice or vinegar. YUM!

      This was an okay recpie, but felt like it was missing something. It is a healthy dish and easy to make. I may make again, or even play with the recpie myself to add that missing ingredient. Faith
