Honey-Glazed Tofu on Pumpkin Seed Couscous
Sorry to be SO late on this, but we're just beginning to get settled from the drive. I'm not sure how this is going to taste, since I don't have anything in the kitchen yet. So, hopefully, this comes out yummy.... If not, one out of the many is not bad! ~_^

2 tsp. cracked black pepper

To make Pumpkin Seed Couscous:
