I used regular mustard instead of dijon, and threw in some balsamic and red wine vinegar and a dash of cumin. Let the flavors come together for atleast an hour. My beets had greens on them still and I read that they are super nutritious so they were added to the mix. I did forget about the almonds but they weren't missed much.
I didn't think it had enough flavor but my husband loved it. Really liked the couscous.
