Recipe Notes

 

RECIPE FOR COUSCOUS

Ingredients

1 cup instant couscous
1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil (may be omitted if desired)
1 cup water or broth
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Pour boiling water into a saucepan. Add olive oil and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Remove the pan from heat and add the couscous and salt. Stir to evenly moisten the couscous.
  • Cover the pan and let it sit for 10 minutes. If the couscous hasn’t absorbed the water or still tastes crunchy after this time, cover and let it sit for a few more minutes.
  • Gently break apart and fluff the cooked couscous with a fork before serving. If the rest of dinner isn’t quite done, re-cover the pan after fluffing to keep the couscous warm.
