My first couscous experience was at a Mediterranean restaurant a few years back. It came alongside my meal and I wasn't sure what to think of the tiny little balls that were not quite the rice or pasta that I was used to eating. Needless to say, I quickly developed a liking to this perfect side dish! It pairs with nearly everything and it's especially perfect with vegetables.
Today, I'm sharing a recipe for Garlic Couscous. It comes together in just over five minutes and it's so delicious. The garlic flavor actually really nice-- not at all overwhelming. This couscous recipe definitely has found a place in my dinner rotation.
5-Minute Garlic Couscous
1 cup couscous
1 cup chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon margarine
2 cloves minced garlic
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the margarine. Once melted, add the salt and garlic and saute for a few seconds, while stirring constantly. Add the broth and cook on high until the mixture comes to a boil. Add the couscous and stir until well combined. Place the lid on the saucepan and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. After the five minutes has passed, remove the lid, fluff the couscous with a fork, and serve.
