This couscous recipe has you cook the couscous with the rest of the ingredients instead of making it, fluffing and then mixing with the other ingredients. It makes for a different flavor. You can replace 1/2 cup of the broth with white wine for a different take.
- 1 cup couscous
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 cup mushroom, sliced
- 1⁄4 cup nuts (pine, sliced almond, pecan or walnut. More if you want)
- 2 cups chicken broth (mushroom or veggie also work well)
- 1⁄4 cup basil, fresh chopped
- Heat the olive oil in a pan large enough to hold everything.
- Gently cook the onion, mushrooms and nuts for 2-3 minutes or til soft.
- Add the couscous and broth.
- Season to taste as you wish.
- Cover and simmer 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Garnish with chopped basil and enjoy.
