    Chez Michelle's Note:

    My sister made this at one of our family gatherings with #185976 (Middle Eastern Beef Kabobs) and it is wonderful side dish. You can pre-chop and pre-measure prior to a dinner party and have it ready very quickly. I used a nice shaped bowl (that was a good portion size) and used that for the mold :) Nice flavor to enhance the main dish :) Gourmet July 1991

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a saucepan combine the butter and the broth, bring the liquid to a boil, and stir in the couscous.
    2. 2
      Remove the pan from the heat, let the mixture stand, covered, for 5 minutes, and transfer it to a bowl.
    3. 3
      Break up any lumps with a fork and stir in the currants, the scallion, the pistachios, the parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice, the cinnamon, and the oil.
    5. 5
      Toss the couscous mixture with the dressing and season it with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Pack the mixture into four 3/4-cup timbales (or mold of your choice- I use ramekin or other serving size dish) and unmold the timbales/mold onto 4 plates.
