Couscous is a great alternative for rice, which can be a little carb and starch heavy. Its light texture easily picks up any added complimentary flavor. I usually accompany a plate of couscous with some sauteed fish and/or a side of stir fried vegetables.


1 ½ cups couscous
3 ¼ cups boiling water
1 medium size red onion
½ teaspoon grated ginger root
1 teaspoon organic chicken/vegetable broth paste
? teaspoon turmeric powder
? teaspoon red chilli powder
½ teaspoon olive oil or canola oil spray


  1. In a pot boil 3 and a quarter cups water. Add chicken broth and stir.
  2. In another pan saute chopped onions, add grated ginger root.
  3. Mix in couscous and saute. If you like the roasted couscous taste then saute for an extra few minutes till the couscous turns dark orange.
  4. Pour in chicken broth mixture and stir. The couscous should barely be touching the surface of the liquid.
  5. Give it one quick shot of a high cooking flame and take off the burner. Close with lid and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Fork couscous till it fluffs up. It is now ready to serve.
