One of the greatest discoveries in the carb department with my kids was how much they love couscous. Potatoes are still mostly a no go. Squash basically gets laughed at unless I purée it into the best carbonara sauce ever (like in this recipe). My husband is a more difficult sell for couscous, but my kids will always say “this is a yummy supper mama” when couscous is on the table. I often serve it with lamb or chicken, but here I have it with a quick cooking broiled salmon recipe and a get on the table stat salad.
