Wonderfully different! It was like eating the essence of carrot and ginger, both of which just infused the dish. A keeper.

Carrot juice, rich in beta-carotene, gives the couscous vibrant color and packs this dish with more than 100 percent of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin A. The juice is reduced to concentrate the flavor.
