How To Make Couscous
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup couscous
2 cups water or broth
Pour the olive oil into a large saute pan and put the stove on high. Add the couscous and stir to coat with the oil. Stir the couscous for 1 to 2 minutes until it slightly colors.
Add the water or broth and shake the pan gently to evenly distribute it. Keep the burner on high until the water starts to bubble. Turn the burner off and put a lid on the pan.
Let it sit for 7 minutes.
Remove the lid and fluff the couscous with a fork.
Recipe Notes: Sometimes it clumps a little and if it does you just have to use the fork to break them up. I don’t mind some clumps because they are never gummy or sticky for me. I never eat couscous plain so by the time I mix vegetables into it the clumps usually break up completely anyway. I don’t salt my couscous. If I’m going to use salt I add it at the same time that I add other things to it.
