You will need the following to make our Couscous Recipe:
- 1 cup uncooked couscous
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
You will need the following kitchenware to make this dish:
- Measuring cups
- Dish towel
Here are the steps to follow to cook couscous:
First prepare all the kitchenware you’ll need for the dish. Prepare your bowl, measuring cups, saucepan, dish towel, and fork.
At the same time, gather all the ingredients you’ll need. Prepare your uncooked couscous, water, and salt. Alternatively, you can use chicken stock, beef stock, or pan juices instead of just plain water. Just use the same amount of liquid.
In a saucepan, add in water and salt.
Bring the water to a boil.
Remove the saucepan from heat.
In a bowl, mix the boiling water and uncooked couscous. Mix well.
Cover your bowl with the dish towel and let it stand for 5 minutes.
Remove the dish towel and using a fork, fluff the couscous. You’re ready to serve!
Alternatively, you can boil your beef stock, chicken stock, or whatever juice or sauce you’re using and stir in the couscous in the pan. Let it boil before you turn off the heat. Cover the pan and let stand for 5 minutes and it’s done!
