Lovely as a side dish with grilled chicken, or on it's own for lunch.

Mix this up by adding your own combo of veg, fresh herbs, and dressing. The one used in this recipe is just 35 cal for 2 tbsp. so if yours differs you'll need to adjust the calories etc accordingly.

  • *If you are using the standard ratio of 1 part Israeli couscous : 2 parts liquid (broth, water, etc), you will NOT need to drain it once cooked. The couscous will absorb exactly twice its measurement in liquid for best results* :) - 10/3/13
