Spiced Couscous

3 August 2010


  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1.5 tsp parsley
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1.25 cups water
  • 1 cup couscous (should be a type that typically cooks quickly, <= 10 minutes in boiling water)

Bring the water to boiling, then take off the heat and add the couscous, butter, 1/2 tsp pepper, and parsley. Stir the couscous so that it is all submerged, then cover and allow to steam for 10 minutes.

In a pan, saute the remaining spices in the olive oil. Once the couscous has finished steaming, mix the sauteed spices into it.
