This heart-healthy, quick, and easy dish is something very easy to throw together for dinner. It's perfect for dinner and lunch the next day and is just as tasty hot or cold. Kate originally came up with this recipe after coming back from the gym with no fresh ingredients on hand. Just by using what was in the pantry and freezer this amazing dish came together. Although it is vegetarian friendly, many meat eaters will be satisfied with this high-protein meal.

Delicious and easy. As others have said, it definitely needs lemon juice and LOTS of kale. I used fresh kale and next time will put in closer to 2 cups. My husband and teenage son agree that this dish is a "keeper."

I too made this after coming home late from the gym. Was certainly quick, nutritious, and yummy. I was worried I didn't use enough couscous or water but it's definitely enough. My only recommendation to to use more (fresh) kale, it's a wonder food after all, and maybe less butter to lesson the calorie count. Will keep this one handy for quick dinners.

My husband and I loved this recipe. I followed the cook's note and used frozen kale, but I didn't add the almonds or cheese and it still tasted great. We ate the couscous with parathas. It was a really fast meal to put together.
