This couscous recipe is very basic. Couscous goes with just about any main course, especially chicken. You will find couscous more often in North African cuisine. Most couscous sold in grocery stores has already been pre-steamed, so preparation is vey simple!

Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1 1/2 cup couscous
- 2 3/4 cups water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add salt and stir. Add couscous and remove from heat and allow to sit for about 5 minutes.
