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!

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!

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
