Many years ago I tried this lemon flavoured couscous in a Moroccan restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I searched for some time to find a few recipes that came close and I have come up with something very close and just as enjoyable for me and my friends!

  1. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT couscous in a pot. Bring to a boil uncovered.
  2. Remove from heat and immediately stir in couscous. Let stand 5 minutes, covered.
  3. Fluff with a fork **Important** or it turns to a brick!
  4. Can be served hot or chill to make a wonderful salad.

This made a nice addition to Lower Calorie Chicken Piccata. The dish is very colorful and the vegetables add a delicate crunch. The recipe makes generous servings. It was served at room temperature.
