I added 4 oz of cooked, shredded turkey and 2 carrots, sliced into rounds and steamed, to make it a one pot meal. Definitely will be making this one again.


This recipe is very easy, healthy and tasty! I easily found whole wheat couscous by Fantastic in my grocery store. I had to substitute 1Tbls of dried dill for 2 Tbls of fresh. My husband and my ever so selective 17 year old approved and asked for more!

I could not find whole-wheat couscous at the regular grocery store, and so used regular and this recipe was very delicious. Hard to believe it is healthy! I am going to pick up some whole-wheat couscous at the co-op and keep this one in my regular rotation.


This recipe was not only filling, but very tasty. I will add just a bit more chicken broth next time because it was a bit too sticky for my taste, but it is delicious.
