I adore couscous. It’s just so tasty and so versatile!
Below is my favorite preparation. It’s fast and easy. The hard part is finding couscous in the grocery store. I buy Rice Select Original Couscous. You can buy it online or put in your zip code and find a store near you that sells it.
Since couscous is a staple in Tunisia, I felt the jazz song “Night in Tunisia” sung live by Chaka Khan was especially appropriate for today’s song!
