Serve Couscous with marinated, broiled vegetables. Cooked chilled Couscous makes a super salad ingredient. Use a bed of Couscous instead of rice with curries or stir fry meals.
Pour 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups of liquid into a medium sized saucepan. The liquid can be water or vegetable stock or meat stock. Using stock adds more flavor to the dish. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of salt to the liquid and bring it to a boil. Add 1 cup of couscous to the boiling liquid. Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let it stand for about 6 minutes. Do not lift the lid until the required time has elapsed. Fluff the couscous with a fork and serve. This recipe yields about 3 one-cup servings.
