This version is a flavorful herbed couscous, specked with bright green peas and crunchy pine nuts. This flavor combination is classic in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes — a tasty side dish that's less starchy than potatoes or pasta.
The key to the flavor in this green pea couscous is the blend of fresh herbs that add both great flavor and enticing aroma to the dish. The combination of fresh garlic, mint and parsley fills the kitchen while cooking, which is sure to get everyone hungry. This side dish would be perfect to serve with a Middle Eastern chicken or fish recipe and comes together in just 15 minutes.
