READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Laylagirl

This came from one of Mr. Food's cookbooks. I altered it slightly for my family's tastes. It is one of our favorites. Has a chill time.

Have been making this from an ad for Near East original plain couscous, for so long, that my page has faded to be almost unreadable. It is very forgiving of adding some of your favorite flavors - I usually add some sultana raisins and toasted pine nuts. Sometimes it pays to advertise ! This holds over one night, but gets soggy after that.
