Sometimes it's nice having someone taste-test in advance, and that's what I've done for you by trying out the brown rice couscous available by Lundberg. I was never a huge couscous fan before going gluten-free, but I always enjoyed eating it occasionally. And, I think this brown rice couscous is a nice alternative side-dish. We cooked up some mini hamburgers topped with spiced havarti cheese and had fresh veggies on the side for a (definitely not authentic) Mediterranean-inspired meal. Enjoy!
We added grape tomatoes, but apparently those missed being photographed.
