Top Review by MsFunnybones

Good side dish for Mediterranean food. We had it with beef and lamb souvlaki. I served a side of tzitziki with it and some of us added feta cheese. There were 6 of us and a LOT left over. This recipe I think would serve 10 people or so, as a side dish. I took a poll and we got an average of 4 stars. I myself, gave it 5 for the flavors and ease in making. I think it was really good and would make it again. There were others who thought it was a bit dry and gave it less. Nevertheless, it was pretty, tasty, and easy. So it spoke to me! I made this recipe for PAC '11. I forgot to post a picture. But it IS pretty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Instructions.
  2. First up, melt your butter on medium heat and add in the garlic, letting it cook up for a minute or two. Next you'll go ahead and add in your green onions to the mix. Swirl them around and cook em up for a minute or two and then pour in your couscous to the pan.
  3. Stir the couscous in the pan a few times and give it a good 3 or so minutes to start browning up the grains. Now you'll add in your broth, wine, beans, pepper, cinnamon, and lemon. Bring it to a boil, cover the pan, turn it back down to low and let it cook for around 12 minutes or until the couscous is cooked through.
  4. Finally, you'll toss in your tomatoes and salt the dish if needed.
