This recipe just lacks in flavor. I did not have feta, but I made the rest of the recipe exactly other than that. A recipe should not rely on a cheese for flavor. The vinegar drowns out the little bit of curry and ginger. I would not make this again.
Curried Couscous with Broccoli and Feta
Using bagged broccoli florets and preshredded carrots all but eliminates the prep with this vegetarian entrée. If you want to add meat to the couscous, use chopped chicken or thin strips of flank steak.
