Couscous has to be the easiest thing in the world to make. You can add all kinds of flavours to it to keep it interesting.
1/2 cup couscous
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 diced tomato
1 teaspoon fresh chopped or dried parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Bring chicken stock to a boil with cumin, salt, pepper and tomato paste. Remove from the heat then stir in couscous and cover. Let it sit for about 10 - 15 minutes then uncover and fluff with a fork. Gently stir in olive oil, tomato, parsley and lemon juice.
I let it come to room temperature or even refrigerate it before serving. You can taste the flavours better when it's not hot.
