What’s Cooking: Curry Couscous

A healthy, comfort food meal — whether made in the wild, or in your kitchen at home.

Sometimes, you just crave a hot, comforting meal.

When camping, especially in colder climates, it makes all the difference in order to revive your spirits and elevate your internal temperature.

This minimal-ingredient and big-taste couscous recipe is perfect for those times -- or just about any night of the week, when you want to whip up a healthy dinner in a hurry.

What we particularly love about the combination of couscous and curry is that, well … what's not to love? Couscous and curry make such a delicious pair.

Beyond that, the flexibility to add just about any vegetable or other ingredient variation to this is endless, and the rich curry flavor as a base works with just about anything you want to throw into the mix.
