Tasty and pretty side dish.

Top Review by Anu_N

This is nice, but a bit plain. I seasoned it with a bit of salt and pepper at the end. I'm sure it would be a lot more flavourful with some sauteed or roasted bell peppers. Instead of using boiling water, I added plain water, brought it to a boil, added the couscous, stirred once, switched off the burner, covered tighly, and let it sit undisturbed for 5 minutes. It works every time, and the couscous is done just right!
