This is really good. I didn't have pine nuts so I used walnuts and it was awesome!! Beautiful dish too, very gourmet looking.

Quick, easy to prepare and very tasty. Even my husband, who dislikes vegetables, liked this. I added a minced clove of garlic to liven it up a bit but otherwise prepared it as directed. A nice addition to my collection of low cholesterol recipes.

Sorry, but I did not like this. I couldn't even finish my serving. I'm sorry that I can't really describe exactly what I didn't like about this.

Try some red pepper flakes and/or garlic.

Delicious and easy to make. The lemon and spinach go together well to create a unique flavour.

I decided to make this for a quick and easy Friday night dinner for my toddler and myself. I live in the tropics so I used kangkong [Asian spinach] instead of the usual spinach. This may have been a mistake as kangkong is a little more bitter. Instead of lemon juice I used lime in the amounts specified by the recipe. The pine nuts are a good idea as it needs something to give it a slightly sweet touch. Just needs more. I would probably try out flaked almonds once my toddler is old enough. I also like heaps of better on my couscous. Actually my preference is for it to be semi-saturated with butter because 1. couscous can be very dry by its nature and 2. I like the taste of a good NZ butter and 3. I'm a dairy farmer's daughter ;-). So I would prefer more fat in what is an extremely low fat dish. There's something missing though and I'm not 100% sure what. Next time I will probably try dissolving a stock cube in the water and Massel produce some good vegan chicken tasting ones. To me it is a 2 star recipe because I'm a hard marker. The 3rd star is because my 20 month old decided she would have a couple of bites despite not being hungry at all. I would not abandon this recipe however. It is a good start and it is quite edible. It just lacks the pizzazz that would make me keen to make it on a regular basis or have me going back for umpteen repeats until I am absolutely full.
