    Rita~'s Note:

    This is a easy basic recipe for couscous making it light and fluffy, not gummy. Be sure to allow the couscous to absorb the water. It's a tiny pasta made of ground semolina flour. Add spices, fruits, nuts, and vegetables you like. You can use a flavored broth to also kick it up. This can be used for a breakfast, side, salad, stuffing......

      I reduced this to 2 servings. This was my "lesson" since I never made couscous before. I'm glad I chose your recipe Rita. It was so easy. I used beef broth and butter and left it plain and simple to test it out. I liked it and feel I'm ready to try a little fancier now. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.

      Thanks for posting this recipe Rita~ !! As I bought a bulk bag of couscous at an Amish market that came with no directions! So as soon as I saw this recipe in the Veg 'N Swap I knew I had to tag it! I made it as directed and it was light, fluffy and delicious! I served it with my recipe of ratatouille and it was divine!
