I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Everyone loved it. I went well with the beef tenderloin roast I made.

I made this tonight and loved it! It's the perfect weeknight side with lots of flavor and convenient pantry staples. Thank you for sharing; I'll be making this often.

I used fregola sarda instead of Israeli couscous, which took about 20 minutes to cook through. My orange juice was fairly concentrated, and so the end result was too sweet and sticky - my boyfriend called it "candied couscous." I think next time I will use 3/4 cups OJ and 1 cup of water, but the olive oil, onion, and olive flavors in this dish are really great additions.

That's a great idea to cut the OJ with water. There is definitely a sweet undertone for sure which I love but may not work for others. Thanks for trying my recipe.

Can I make this ahead and serve it at room temp or is it better hot?

Absolutely, I've even packed this for lunch and picnics. Because this type of cous cous is so starchy it might clump together,so fluff it just before eating.

I just picked up some cous cous and quinoa at the market a couple of days ago and was wondering hoe I would like to fix it. This looks great! I will give it a try!

I fixed this for dinner tonight and added za'atar in place of thyme. I also sauteed the onion with the couscous. It was light and delicious!

Za'atar is a great idea for this dish (and what a wonderful dish by the way). I am having a Middle Eastern themed dinner this Saturday and will be definitely making this one.

This recipe is outstanding. I made it last night and had leftovers today and licked the plate!

I plan to try this with quinoa. Sounds like a winner, and the taste profile is right up our alley. Thanks!
