used my "go to" Oregon Flavor Rack no salt garlic and herb seasoning instead of thyme. Served with a stuffed fillet of sole, it was awesome!

Quick easy recipe. I think the fresh herbs were key to making this a tasty side dish. Will make again.

This was my first time making couscous and I was nervous about how it would turn out and how it would taste. I couln't believe how easy it was to put together!!! The taste was excellent, much better than the plain white rice I would've normally served! My 3-year-old loved it too!!

I changed the thyme for tarragon. I made this with salmon teriyaki. The taste was delicate enough not to overshadow the fish but still full of flavor to want to do it again. Simple and delicious!
