Lemon couscous is one of the easiest and most flavorful couscous recipes!


  • 2 cups instant couscous
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 32 oz. can chicken broth, low sodium


In a medium sauce pot, bring chicken broth, lemon juice and lemon zest to a boil.

In a medium bowl, combine couscous and salt. Pour boiling broth over couscous and allow to sit, covered for 10 minutes, or until the broth is absorbed.

Fluff couscous with a fork and serve immediately.

Tasty, Member jokamac

Not only does this taste good when you first make it but any left over is even tastier the next day, cold as an additional ingredient on a salad
