Couscous is actually a type of
semolina (wheat) in the pasta family that’s a great choice for busy
would-be gourmets because it cooks up so quickly. Play around with
various spices and ingredients. Try adding coriander, fresh basil or
peas to the couscous – this dish is supremely versatile.
2 cups couscous
2 cups boiling water
1 Tablespoon butter
4 large scallions, trimmed and finely sliced
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Put the couscous in a medium heat-proof bowl. Cover with boiling water.
Cover with a lid and let sit for 8 minutes.
While the couscous is steaming, heat the butter in a small sauté pan;
sauté scallions and parsley for 2 minutes. Turn heat off, and add salt
and pepper. Stir together.
With a fork, stir couscous. When couscous is tender, add the scallion
mixture. Mix well.
