Couscous Pilaf

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by LI-Ray

I usually make this recipe to go with my Mediterranean Chicken Thighs. I found both recipes in my local newspaper and they've been a family favorite for several years. I hope you enjoy both as much as we do.

This is easy and delicious - and I usually have these ingredients on hand. It has excellent flavors. I will be making this again. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/4 tsp. cumin - I stirred it in with the green onions, raisins, nuts, and ginger and let it cook for a minute. Thanks for posting!
