I tried Couscous today. It was good. Add 2 cups chicken broth (or any flavor broth) to 1 cup couscous in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 10-12 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. Add anything. I added sausage, carrots, and green onion to this. It turned out good. Couscous was a nice change of pace from my standard rice, potatoes, or noodles.
