  6. Thank you for all the comments.

    G – Just add hot water gradually to the pan, you should stop when the couscous is soft and starting to stick together. You can also place it in separate bowl, pour over hot water (according to the instructions on the packet) and leave aside covered till ready. Then add it to the vegetables.

  7. Have you tried this with Israeli couscous yet?
