New Taste Thinking: If you are looking for a new vegetarian recipe I can recommend this one. The chunky steamed vegetables are so satisfying and the couscous is sweet-spicy and delicious. You can even make the couscous ahead of time and just warm it as the vegetables are cooking. If you don't have all of the ingredients for the couscous just make it with the ones you have. If you have never tried whole wheat couscous I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
