In order for your Couscous to taste good and be made quickly and easily, use the ingredients from the list and follow the preparation method.
Uncooked couscous (500 ml) — Raw coucous, NOT half-cooked
Boiling water (same volume as the couscous – 500 ml)
Olive oil (2 tablespoons)
Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
- Place the couscous in a bowl and add olive oil.
- Mix well with your hands, until you feel that all the couscous grains are well coated.
- Now, in the same container where you measured the couscous, put a large pinch of salt and add boiling water until you have the exact volume as the couscous. So in my case it’s 500 ml. Remember, it’s a 1 to 1 volume ratio for couscous and water.
