Leached all vegetables overnight using yellow pepper, omit olives, herbs,1/2 amount of salt, no pepper, used Quinoa instead of Coucoucus. Dietitian comment: Sounds great[INVALID]thanks for sharing. One note on the quinoa substitution[INVALID]it's quite a bit higher in potassium and phosphorus compared to couscous (194 mg potassium and 92 mg phosphorus per serving of the prepared recipe). For those limiting these 2 minerals stick with couscous or discuss with your dietitian.

Would this be good with Israeli couscous or will be make it too chewy? My husband doesn't much care for the small stuff. Also, it's hard to rate a recipe when I haven't tried it, but it looks like it would be very good.

I made this with quinoa, and we really liked it. Quinoa gives more texture and is a protein, which my husband needs more of in his diet. Dietitian comment: Quinoa is much higher in potassium and phosphorus than couscous. If you are limiting these minerals I do not recommend this change.

Will it make any difference if I add saffron when I am soaking my couscous before adding it to the couscousierre to steam? I guess I don't want to lose the flavor of saffron, but I don't know if saffron has problems for the CKD non-dialysis diet. Moderator comment: Saffron is acceptable for a kidney diet. 1 teaspoon contains only 12 mg potassium, 1 mg sodium and 2 mg phosphorus--very low!

Made this for my fiance & I. Could use less oil, as he thought it had too much. I found it to be better the 2nd day.
