Handy tips on cooking nice fluffy Couscous.

I always use a cup measure to make Couscous – the cup should hold approx 250 ml / 8 fl oz of liquid.  If you don’t have an actual cup measure, just use a regular cup.  Here goes:-

Cooking Couscous – Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Couscous (serves approx 4-6)
  • 2 Cups Boiling Water
  • 2 Table Spoons Oil (I use Olive Oil)
  • Half Tea Spoon Salt


Cooking Couscous – Method

  1. Measure 2 cups of boiling water from the kettle into a saucepan.  Bring back to the boil
  2. Take off the heat and add the Oil, Salt and finally the  Couscous.  Give it all a stir
  3. Cover with lid immediately and stand for approx 5 minutes
  4. Remove lid and fluff up Couscous with fork
  5. Ready to serve

How easy was that?

Couscous freezes well so don’t be afraid of making too much.

Look out for upcoming dinner in ten minutes recipe – Stir Fry Lamb with Tomatoes and Pesto served with, you guessed it, Couscous!
