Mediterranean Couscous with Mint and Curcuma

Makes 4 servings | 15 minutes

Healthy, quick, and very versatile recipe! Mint gives this dish a fresh taste and aroma, while Curcuma adds color and acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. You can use other fresh herbs such as sage, basil, or cilantro instead. To make this an entrée, add a little feta cheese, water-packed tuna, or shredded cooked chicken.
