Golden Seasoned Couscous

Golden Seasoned Couscous created by Annacia

Caramelizing the onions is what brings out extra flavor to this dish --- adjust the amount of cayenne pepper to suit heat level, make certain that the chicken broth is *hot* before adding to the recipe :)

    really nice! i reduced the couscous and broth by one-third, but left all other measurements the same. i didn't wind up using any pepper-- it tasted fine without. i also didn't have any currants on hand, so i just did without. it was still great.

    I used a bit more of the spices to give it extra flavour and added some curry. I´m always looking for tasty side dish recipes and this one was great. Thanks.

    I really liked this dish when I made it, but it was even better the next day cold. I decided to not use the olive oil and cumin( I do not like it). I also substituted dried cranberries for the currants. I made this earlier in the day and just added the hot couscous at serving time. This would be a great make ahead dish for a buffet. Thanks for the recipe.
