Mushroom & Spinach Couscous

I am a huge fan of couscous and an even bigger fan of changing it up each time we make it.  For Mushroom, Spinach & Herb Couscous, I add diced fresh mushrooms, and sliced scallions to the cooking water, along with a tablespoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of fine chopped fresh lemony thyme, and about a 1/2 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning.

CouscousWhen the water comes to a boil, stir in the couscous, cover the pot and remove from the heat for 5 minutes.

Fluff the couscous with a fork and gently fold in a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach leaves.  Return the lid and allow the spinach to wilt for a few minutes before serving.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
