Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Try whole wheat couscous for nutritional boost. Can be used to top polenta or pasta. Quick and easy and very low-fat. Saffron is very good but very expensive and some grocery stores only sell it from behind a counter. From Vegetarian Times Cooks Mediterranean. Have not made this yet.
