Description

Saffron, turmeric, and coriander lend exotic flavors to the couscous here, which is also seasoned with garlic and hot pepper as it "cooks" and then combined with a mixture of finely chopped (in a food processor) bell pepper, cucumber, tomato, carrot, cilantro, and red chile pepper. Crisped bacon bits are added at the end, just before serving, as the main part of a meal (with a salad alongside) or a side dish for meat, poultry, or fish.
