Basic Couscous Recipe

The most basic couscous recipe of all requires nothing but a packet of couscous and hot water.

Add hot water to cover the dried couscous grains with an extra half inch, and then wait for it to absorb and soften. A lid helps.

But I would always add a least a knob of butter, some black pepper and a squirt of harrissa.

Better is to use some of the liquid that comes with making a complete couscous dish, ie the vegetable or meat stew.
