Curried couscous from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook (page 94) by Ina Garten

Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Here's another "why didn't I make this sooner?" recipe. I wanted a main to serve 1 (with lunch leftovers) so I added around 4 oz of cooked chicken to 1/3 of the recipe. I choose to lightly saute the onions with some added sweet red pepper & I used spinach in place of parsley. I finished off a homemade Bobby Flay curry spice blend & like others, subbed in craisins in place of currants. I ate this warm (rather than room temp) and I would make it again for sure.

    This recipe had held up well over the years, considering it was first published in 1999! I left out the yogurt as we avoid dairy and didn't miss it at all. Served with grilled shrimp skewers for dinner. The leftovers made a nice next day lunch.

    I omitted the red onion as there was plenty of onion flavor from the scallions for my taste. I used dried cranberries instead of currants, which added some sweetness and color. The couscous was quite tasty. Extra vegetables would be nice here, such as baby spinach or bell pepper.

    Pg. 94. I wanted to love this as much as the previous 3 reviewers and expected to, given that it's an Ina Garten recipe. Unfortunately, I thought it was just so-so. That may have been because I used whole wheat couscous rather than regular couscous. I'd never used whole wheat before and I think I don't care for it. I'd give this recipe another try using regular couscous.

    One of my favorite BC recipes ever, and one of the simplest and healthiest, too. Keeps well in the fridge for repeat lunches.

    My cousin made this for a barbecue, it is delicious! Definitely not another ho hum couscous salad.

    This is an unbelievable salad and very easy; I substitute craisins for currants
