This was a delightful side dish because it served as a starch and a vegetable, and didn’t require a lot of last-minute hands-on time. I used whole wheat couscous from Trader Joe’s, and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Couscous has been largely supplanted by quinoa on our table, so it had been a long time since I’d had it.
