Turmeric Lemon Couscous


Tired of rice? Try couscous instead, it’s so quick and simple to prepare this dish! Great for busy families, or even for a quick meal. I like that it not only taste good, a very nice texture, and it is very very versatile! Here I’m serving it with Moroccan Spiced Beef Patties with Cucumber Lime Yogurt Sauce.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4)

  • 1 1/2 cups couscous
  • Slightly shy of 2 3/4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

Bring chicken stock to boil.
Lower heat.

Add turmeric, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
Bring to boil.

Pour in couscous.

Stir in parsley.
Bring to boil.
Turn off heat.

Cover and let it sit for 10 mins.

Fluff with a fork before serving.

Bon appetit!!

    Yum the couscous sounds great. I guess you could also use the flavoring in rice too. Are you gonna post the recipe for Moroccan beef patties? I love Moroccan spices.

      Yes you can! It will work great with millet and quinoa as well. 🙂
