The great thing about this recipe is that it's inexpensive and, if you're making it for just one or two people, the leftovers can be made into multiple meals with a just a few new additions. You can try adding roasted asparagus to the mix or even throwing it over a bed greens with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. If you're in the mood for protein, quickly cook some chicken breasts, thighs or legs and serve with couscous as a side dish. You could even season the chicken with lemon, garlic and oregano to give it a Greek twist to go with the flavors in the dish.

Note: The feta will add a considerable amount of salt, especially if you're using one in brine, so keep that in mind while seasoning the couscous.
