From the Test Kitchen

Mediterranean-Style Couscous:

Prepare as above, except omit plum sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper. Stir 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed, into saucepan with water. Substitute 1/4 cup snipped dried tomatoes (not oil-packed) for the sugar snap pea pods and frozen sweet soybeans (edamame), thawed, for the black beans. Omit mango and sesame seeds. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese before serving.

Southwestern-Style Couscous:

Prepare as above, except increase water to 1 3/4 cups. Omit plum sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper. Substitute thin bite-size strips red sweet pepper for the sugar snap pea pods and canned black-eyed peas for the black beans. Omit mango and sesame seeds. Stir 1/3 cup bottled chipotle-style salsa into couscous mixture (or use 1/3 cup bottled regular salsa and 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce).
