Seasoned Couscous

There were so many fantastic recipes in this month’s Simple and Delicious (Aug/Sept) that I hardly knew where to start.  In search of a quick afternoon snack (yes, snack, I’m weird), I went to this seasoned couscous from page 27.   It’s a good base recipe, though I think next time I’d like to make a few changes (when I do I’ll post it).  This comes in at 185 calories and 3 grams of fat per 1 cup serving.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
  • 2 tsp chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz) couscous


  1. In a large saucepan combine everything BUT the couscous.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the couscous.
  5. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
  6. Fluff with a fork.
