      I used some red onion, some green onion, about half an orange pepper, 3 C chicken broth, 1 1/2 C couscous and no butter. I sauteed the vegetables in a little olive oil first and then added the chicken broth and the rest of the ingredients. So, it was quicker. It turned out very well. The amount of liquid to couscous was just right. I served it with chicken. :)

      Perfect side for a spicy fish dish. I liked that it wasn't as dry as couscous usually turns out. I diced some baby carrots to use in it. Your favorite herbs could be added if you wanted a bit more flavor.
