Cooking with Joy: Easy Couscous Side



I always notice people asking for quick and easy side dishes. Well this recipe might be exactly what those people are looking for. This recipe took about 7 minutes from start to finish NO JOKE!

While the water was boiling for the couscous I prepped the rest of the ingredients.

Hubs doesn’t like craisins, so I just added a few. I love the sweet tart flavor they add to most things I put them in. I also loved the combo of the cumin, parsley, lemon and pine nuts!

The couscous didn’t even hit our plates; we ate it right out of the bowl.
