Some couscous recipes I enjoy are:
*This one is on my other blog. You could make the recipe healthier by using a Light Caesar dressing and using less Parmesan cheese in it.
I have another easy healthy couscous side dish to share with you today! It's from my old BHG New Dieter's Cook Book. It's so easy to make for a side dish since I always keep the ingredients on hand!
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup water
1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley (or 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
2/3 cup couscous
In medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except couscous. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in couscous. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Makes 4 servings.

The original recipe calls for sauteed fresh mushrooms to cook with the water and herbs at the beginning and adds in chopped tomato at the end. Feel free to add those in - I just like to make this on the spur of the moment and not have to worry about having the veggies to add. You could also add in whatever veggies you like!
If you haven't had couscous, I hope you give it a try. Do you already cook with it? What are your favorite couscous recipes?
