Pasta Couscous / Kuskus Makarna

Couscous Kuskus

This is so easy to prepare and yet so delicious. Whenever I cook this it is finished so quickly, no left overs at all. As couscous is sold next to pasta one might go ahead and cook it like a spagetti, next time try my way and you’ll notice a huge difference.

I have to open a paranthesis and say – once again- few words about the word couscous. I know that for many it is something else. In Turkey couscous is tiny pasta and not semolina.

Serve as a side dish. Serve warm and enjoy.

By the way the background is a box I’ve done with sticking and painting napkins, just a bit of showing off, couldn’t keep myself from telling.

Instructions
  1. Add the olive oil and butter to a non-sticky pot. Melt.
  2. Add the couscous. Mix for a minute.
  3. Add the chicken boullion. If you are lucky to have chicken stock available replace equal amount of water and leave out the chicken boullion.
  4. Mix and make sure the boullion -if you are using it - is melted.
  5. Add hot water. The ratio is 1 couscous to 1,5 water. You can use a glass or a cup, the ratio will be the same.
  6. Cook over high heat until the water comes to boil. Then reduce the heat. Mix once or twice to make sure the couscous doesn't stick on the bottom.
  7. Cook until the couscous is ready to eat. Should take about 10 minuters. Test one, if still hard in the middle add few tablespoons of hot water, and cook for a short while more.
