Easy As Couscous

I really loved reading your thoughts on food. Thanks for all your great comments! Since I won't be blogging about new purchases for a while, I decided to take some time to share my love for the other worldly delights I have. Lidi from Eclectic Flair asked that I share some quick, easy, and healthy recipes. I am no master chef, but I do love cooking. I am one of those people who find chopping vegetables a time-consuming, yet relaxing chore. So, I do take my time in the kitchen. But when it's hot and humid outside, the last place I want to be is in a boiling hot room, slaving over a hot stove.

This recipe is something my husband and I made up last weekend. We were rushing to get out of the house so we could enjoy the beautiful outdoors. This dish took all of 20 minutes to make and was so delicious, I decided to repeat it for this week's lunch. The recipe makes about 4-6 large servings or 8-10 side servings. I like to keep some couscous in the fridge to nom on for a snack, a quick entree, or a topping for salad

* Instead of WATER, you can also use CHICKEN or VEGETABLE broth. Major flavor points will be added.

  1. Mmmm, that looks so good! THANKS so much for posting it, I can't wait to try it! Okay and because I'm truly cooking-challenged, I have a silly question. The lemon juice, do I need to squeeze fresh lemon? If so, how many lemons do I need to get 1/4 cup?

  14. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It looks delish! I can't wait to try it (and I will within the coming week for sure). Oh, and a high-five for using real grated/shaved Parmesan. Doesn't it taste so much better than that funny stuff you shake out of a canister? I almost think it's cheaper, too.
