Spinach & Feta Couscous

August 7, 2011

I love this versatile side dish. We serve it year round. At room temperature or even chilled in the summer and it is fantastic! In the winter I serve it hot, right off the stove and it is likewise wonderful! It goes equally well with chicken or steak. It is so simple, yet elegant and full of flavour. Easy and quick to prepare…I just can’t say enough good things about my Spinach & Feta Couscous. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!
