Ingredients

1/3 cup water 85 mL
salt 0.4 g
1/2 tsp olive oil 2.5 mL
1/3 cup couscous, whole wheat 50 g

Method

Pour the water into a saucepan, then bring it to a rolling boil. Add the salt and oil. Remove the saucepan from heat then slowly pour in the couscous while stirring gently. Cover for 2 min, until the couscous has swelled and all the water is absorbed. Add a little more water if the couscous looks too dry. Serve.

Remarks

1-2 pats of butter can also be added, if you wish.
