"Martha Stewart's recipe - if using regular couscous, decrease water to 2 1/4 cups. This recipe is super easy and delicious. Use Israeli Cous Cous for this ( bigger size)."

I scaled this back for 1 serve and only served half of what I made which I found to be enough for me but not complaining as I have another lovely meal for today for lunch. This is such a simple recipe yet tastes so good, thank you natsgarden, made for Pick Me tag game under the 48 hour rule.
