    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toast the pine nuts briefly in a dry skillet over medium heat. This will take about 5 minutes, and stir constantly as they will burn easily. Set aside to cool.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan, combine the water, stock, and salt. Bring to a boil, then pour over couscous in a large bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let stand until couscous is tender and water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then fluff with a fork.
    3. 3
      Stir in the pine nuts, lemon juice, red pepper, onion, cayenne pepper, cumin and parsley. Adjust salt and pepper if needed before serving.

      This was a really great couscous recipe! I love the blend of lemon juice, onion, parsley and spices. It had a refreshing zip to it, and it makes for a nice side dish, both warm and cold.
