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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 1 3/4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Step 2

While couscous stands, steam broccoli florets, covered, for 3 minutes or until tender.

Step 3

Combine couscous, broccoli, onion, and next 10 ingredients (onion through chickpeas), tossing gently. Sprinkle with cheese.

tasty vegetarian lunch

This made a really tasty lunch. I didn't have chickpeas so I added an egg on top. Will be making again when I need a quick healthy lunch.

This was a hit with my family. I used quinoa instead of the couscous, used fresh minced ginger, and since I didn't think it had enough curry flavoring I ended up doubling the curry amount. After I mixed it all together, my husband wasn't home from work yet, so I kept the entire mixture on warm and it was very good. I could see it being good warm or cold.

This was a tasty addition to our Meatless Monday meal list. I substituted Pearled couscous, but other than that, it was pretty good. I will be making it again!

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.

My whole family really liked this dish! My seven year old son said "Mommy, the recipe review was right, it is 5 stars!"

Delicious, easy, and a great side. Easily doubled, a constant request in our family, both for summer BBQs or lobster bakes, and in winter. If you use Israeli couscous, increase water or chicken broth (either is fine, but I usually use broth) to 2 cups, and simmer for 10 min. Or until all the liquid is absorbed.
