If I use a packaged mix of cous cous, should I prepare it according to the instructions on the Glorious Pot Meal recipe, or the instructions on the box it came in?
Stop right there! Save that pre-packaged mix for another time. Instead, purchase a cheaper bag of plain, raw cous cous, or scoop it out of the bulk foods bin at the health food grocery store like I do. Following the instructions in the recipe, or in the Common Measurements section of the Glorious Pot Meals cookbook, guarantees perfectly cooked grains every time. Following the instructions on a prepackaged box will add too much water, too much oil, and too many preservatives to be effective in a Glorious Pot Meal.
