Couscous is a side dish that I have loved for years now. Couscous itself is rather plain, but you can add tons of different spices and flavorings to get whatever result it is that you crave, that’s how I came up with this Spiced Couscous. Last year, I made a delicious Tomato Garlic Parmesan Couscous which is a quick and easy side dish to whip up along with any meal. See the thing about couscous, is that it only takes 5 minutes to cook. Today’s couscous is flavored with cumin, which is apparently the world’s second most popular spice behind black pepper but don’t quote me on that. It wouldn’t surprise me at all, I’m a big fan of cumin, I find that in certain dishes, like my favourite Chili con Carne, it adds depth to the flavor of the dish.
See, how easy is that? Couscous is great for those lunches and dinners when there isn’t a lot of time for cooking.
