Saffron Couscous With Herbs
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
20 ingredients
8 servings
This is a wonderful couscous that can stand alone or will compliment a Middle Eastern inspired main dish. You can use less oil if you prefer. UPDATE: Based on some of the reviews I have increased the stock from 2 cups to 2.5 cups and I have increased the servings to 8 instead of 6. The quantity of herbs should be somewhat according to how much you like and which kind of herbs (strong/mild flavour) you are adding.
