2cupswhole wheat couscous
2tablespoonsfresh Italian parsley(roughly chopped)
In a medium size pot, bring the broth, olive oil, one tablespoon of butter and seasonings to a boil.
Add the couscous, stir quickly to combine, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cooked couscous to a large bowl.
Add the rest of the butter (I cut mine up), Parmesan cheese and parsley.
Using a fork to fluff the couscous until the butter is melted and everything is evenly combined. This may take a minute or two. Make sure you don't use a spoon, because it will make the couscous clump together rather than keeping it light and fluffy.
Adjust the seasonings to taste. You can add more salt and or pepper until it suites your tastes.
This makes a large portion and will easily feed 6-8 people depending on portion size. This works great for my family, but if you prefer a smaller amount, you could easily cut the recipe in half.
Also, I used whole wheat, but you can use any kind of couscous. Make sure you check the amount of liquid instructed for the brand of couscous you buy. My couscous was a 1:1 ratio, but each type may be different.
This Couscous recipe makes a tasty side dish for just about any meal!
