Basic Couscous
Servings: 10
Prep time: 15

Couscous is extremely simple and fast to make, and a great pantry standby. Whip this up next time you need to add a quick starch to your meal. The general rule is 1 cup of dry couscous to 1½ cups of water. You can use stock for extra flavor. Unless your doctor has put you on a low fiber diet, we recommend using whole wheat couscous.

Preparation

  1. Bring water or stock, olive oil or butter, and salt to a boil.
  2. Add couscous and stir once. Turn off heat and cover to allow couscous steam for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Ingredients:


  • 3 cups water or stock
  • Olive oil or butter, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 cups whole wheat or plain couscous

Ann's Tips and Tricks

Leftover couscous can be used for salads like tabbouleh, or added to stir fried veggies.

If you are on a bland or low fiber diet, use regular couscous instead of whole wheat.
