  • Summary

    I am always looking for an excuse to use Israeli couscous—I love the texture, and I love how quickly it cooks, which is very important after a long day at work. For a more traditional flavor combination, you could replace the thyme with mint, and omit the lemon juice. If fresh peas aren't available, thaw frozen peas, but don't add until most of the liquid is absorbed. - cottageindustrialist
