Moroccan Couscous

  • Yield: 4 - 6 servings


  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (10-ounce) package plain couscous
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh herb of your choice, such as mint, parsley, cilantro, or basil


  • In a medium saucepan, bring the water, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to a boil.
  • When the water begins to boil, remove the pan from the heat, stir in the couscous, and cover the saucepan. Allow the couscous to stand for 5 minutes, without lifting the lid.
  • Pour the couscous into a large mixing bowl and toss lightly with a fork to break up any lumps.
  • Drizzle the couscous with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, tossing to coat well.
  • Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin, cinnamon, and herb of your choice. Gently toss to combine, using a fork to stir in the seasonings.
