Balsamic Couscous

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kendra

This is a recipe I developed when I couldn't find one that was exactly what I wanted. This is a good side dish recipe for many different menus. It's also very versatile. You can add any different kind of veggies along with the onion (celery, peas, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, corn). I use tri-color couscous in this recipe, but any kind will work.

Very Good! I used whole wheat couscous and vegetable broth because I had some that needed to be used up. I paired it with Recipe #82508 and they complimented each other beautifully. Thanks for posting!

  1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Saute onion and garlic slowly until tender, approximately 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Add couscous, cover pan, remove from heat, and let stand for 5 - 10 minutes.
  4. Pour couscous into a bowl and top with vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir until combined. You may wish to add less or more vinegar depending on what you like. 3T works for us.
