I love the idea of this dish, it just needed a little tweaking. I sauteed some onion and garlic in the olive oil before adding chicken broth (instead of water). This adds a lot more flavor. I used whole wheat coucous and spinach instead of parsley for more nutrition. The end result was great! I love the texture of couscous and the artichoke, tomatoes, feta and lemon juice are all great flavors together. I recommend this dish as a healthy and delicious side dish!
didn't like it at all. sorry. but then again it was my first time eating couscous and also artichoke. just wasn't my cup of tea. the colors were gorgeous though.
I changed the recipe a little. I cooked some fresh garlic and a tiny bit of onions in the oil first and then added chicken broth instead of water. I also forgot the lemon juice and had no feta cheese, so I put some Parmesan cheese in it instead...I know, a lot of changes but it was really good.
As is, didn't pack as much flavor as I liked so I whipped up some balsamic vinaigrette and sliced some black olives.. YUM! Good cold, warmed up, works great with Chicken and fish as a side.. or just all by itself!
Super easy and very flavorful using others suggestions of adding olives & onion. Yummy, will make ths gain for sure
This was amazing!!! So crazy delicious!!! I took the suggestions of others: I sauteed garlic and onions in the olive oil first and then cooked the couscous in chicken broth instead of water. Also, I did not have any parsley so I added chopped scallions instead. I have always liked couscous but this took it to a whole other level! Every last bit was gobbled up by my family and they asked if I would make it again tomorrow night!
Substitute the couscous with quinoa just cuz I had it. My 13 year old son who hates tomatoes love it. I do agree that it needs tweeking. grilled onions perhaps. Maybe next time
This recipe was easy to make and tasted alright. It just wasn't anything special.
