It only takes minutes from boiling time until it’s ready for consumption! Plus you’ll have enough leftovers so your next meal won’t be boring or repetitive– guaranteed deliciousness every single time because there are endless ways we could cook this little delicacy together…

I like making large batches of these ingredients since they’re relatively inexpensive and I can add so many different herbs and spices depending on my meal choice.

Fluffy Couscous


Base Ingredients


  • Couscous;
  • Chicken or vegetable stock – tastier than using just water for soaking;
  • Oil (or butter) helps the grains separate easier, as well as adding flavour; and


Optional Ingredients


  • Parsley
  • Mixed Herbs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Courgette
  • Capsicum


Method for 1:1 Liquid to Couscous Ratio


In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add 1 cup of broth (or water)  bring to a boil.


Stir the couscous in the boiling water and stir in some butter or olive oil before adding your favourite spices. Let it cook for 10 minutes without mixing again; this will help give you a more rustic taste! Once done cooking remove from heat and let sit awhile to allow all those flavours to meld together better than they would if paced quickly over low heat but don’t leave too long otherwise they’ll start getting cold – make sure there’s enough liquid left so that when we fluff them with our fork afterwards everything gets fluffy instead of gummy.
