  1. It really isn’t Lanie, couscous is essentially a wheat based pasta, quinoa is a grain. That said, I personally have used them interchangeably in one of my favorite recipes.

    OMG Mandie! A recipe I can actually make from your blog with the hubs’ allergies. Just gotta omit that garlic or swap it for some shallots and I’m in. *happy dance* I am sooo sick of recipes I find that are fairly quick needing crazy swapping. We’re both getting pretty sick of barley, sweet potatoes, and quinoa though. lol
