Couscous isn't something I grew up eating. I've seen it mentioned on menus before and always meant to try it, and finally just recently I did try it. We really like it! What a great side dish that's super quick and easy to prepare. Here's the recipe I've been using.
10 ounce package frozen broccoli, thawed & drained
14 1/4 ounce can chicken broth
1 cup couscous
salt & freshly ground pepper
Pour the chicken broth into a saucepan and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add the couscous and the broccoli. Cover, remove from heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving.
I've been serving this with Lily's Easy Greek Fish Fillets, making an entire meal that's quick, tasty, and nutritious. Look for couscous on the grocery shelf near the rice.
