From the Culinary Institute of America. I LOVE the bigger, thicker texture of israeli couscous. Sometimes it's hard to find in local stores, this would be good with regular couscous too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in 2 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add couscous and saute, stirring constantly, until well coated and aromatic, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until just tender, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add the herbs and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Outstanding. I finally have a recipe for Israeli couscous that my whole family likes. Although I tweaked this recipe after the first try, just so that I could have my carbs and meat all in one for 'brown bag' lunches. I turned this into a 'not-so-kosher' Israeli couscous by adding dices honey-baked spiral ham. It's delicious.

This was delicious! We loved it and served with lemon olive chicken and pan-fried zucchini. Yum!

I loved this recipe. This was my first time making Israeli Couscous and I loved it. I liked the texture and the flavor and it's super quick to make. Will be making this again.
