Couscous has got to be the easiest side dish in the world to make. Takes about 5 minutes total and you’ve got a nice hot meal. It amazes me that it isn’t a staple in all American household especially since we’re so pressed for time.

If you’ve never cooked couscous, it really easy to make in the microwave. In fact, it’s much easier than cooking it on the stove. Get yourself a microwave bowl. Put in one cup of couscous and 1 1/2 cups of water. Microwave for 1 minute. Then let it sit for 5 minutes.

That’s it! You’ve made a really good side dish and it took almost no time.

If you like you can add to it. Before cooking through in some frozen peas or broccoli (fresh or frozen–takes about the same time). Microwave for 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Now you have a meal.

You can use other vegetables, just make sure they are quick cooking. Otherwise, the couscous might dry out before everything is cooked through.
