Couscous?

How can I prepare the plain so it's tasty and yummy? We're having orange chicken tonight. It probably isn't the best side choice, but it sounded good.

Thanks!!!

Re: Couscous?

Is it plain or flavored?

We LOVE the stuff-- we usually have the packets that come in different flavors... we always make ours with olive oil instead of water and it's delicious!

ETA-- LOL I just re-read and saw there was no need to ask my question, hehe. Since it's plain I'm not sure what I would do! I do like garlic salt on just about everything, though LOL!

I don't know, but maybe you could search Rachel Ray recipes for couscous. I've seen her cook w/ couscous before on TV, but I don't remember any specific recipes.

Re: Couscous?

I like to make it in chicken broth. I put about 2:1 ratio of chicken broth to couscous, cover it, put it in the microwave for 1 minute. Then, bring it out and let it sit for 5 minutes. Voila! DD (15 mos) LOVEs it!

Re: Couscous?

For orange chicken it might be yummy to do 3/4 broth and 1/4 orange juice for flavor.

Hope yours turns out well.
