    Rhiannon and Matt's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from yooper's zucchini couscous recipe here on zaar. Goes great as a side dish and can be eaten hot or cold. We've found that it goes really well with PinkCherryBlossom's Spinach and Chickpea Curry

      This was my first experience with couscous (I used whole grain). I enjoyed the end result of this recipe. I used chicken broth in place of the water. I omitted the mushrooms. My comments are mainly around the amounts called for - I ended up with tons of onion because I used 1 onion that was rather large. I would like to see amounts (1 cup onion, 2 cups chopped zucchini...) and also, I had no idea what "chili" was - chili powder? I used crushed red pepper flakes and that ended up being WAY too spicy. I enjoyed the method of cooking couscous though and will try it again, possibly with other vegetables.

      This was very tasty and easy to throw together for a quick weeknight meal. I served as a light supper with Sauteed Spinach With Garlic on the side. Forgot to add the cumin, s & p until the end, but that didn't seem to make a difference. Thanks for another tasty recipe!
