  • Absolutely delicious. I was

    Absolutely delicious. I was out of quinoa so instead I did 1.5 cups of couscous with the 1tbl TM stock and 2 cups boiling water in the thermoserver. I reduced water in the recipe down to 100ml and otherwise followed it exact minus the quinoa. Then combined the flavour base with the cooked couscous (after fluffing) and it was absosolutely divine. Going to add this to our regular dinners.
