Couscous Tacos
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
5 servings
From a vegetarian cookbook of mine. I love Couscous (KOOS-koos)- it is a quick-cooking grain made from ground semolina in the shape of very tiny beads, so it is a cool change from regular pasta! Also, I suppose you can use soft shell tacos shells, not just hard shell.
