Question, this sounds good, but do you have a suggestion to substitute the white wine? I've never cooked with white wine, but I normally don't like recipes with red wine cooked in them. Dietitian comment: The 2 tablespoons is such a small amount--and not essential for the recipe. You can add 2 tablespoons of unsalted broth or simply use water.

May I add multiple vegetables, such as red/yellow peppers. grean beans, carrots, calabasha squash, summer yellow squash, celery, to this recipe and serve to diabetics who are also on dialysis? May I use rice instead of couscous? Thanks for your help Moderator comment: Yes you can change the vegetable type. As long as you keep the same portions and use the lower potassium vegetables the nutrients will be similar. If you want to check the mutrients use the Nutrition Log in Diet Helper. White rice is a good substitute for the couscous. Enjoy!
