Recipe

Couscous is quickly becoming a staple side dish in my house. It is just so easy to make and I love how light and fluffy it is. It's also neutral enough that it pairs great with almost any meal and stores great if you want to make up a batch ahead of time. This recipe is just to make your basic, plain steamed regular or whole wheat couscous. Consider adding extra flavor with chicken broth, vegetable broth, garlic, fresh herbs, or your favorite spices. I also love adding a drained canned of diced tomatoes.

As a cooking note, the general ratio for couscous is equal parts couscous and liquid.
