We had some delicious couscous last night:
1 1/4 c. water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pepper
bring water and spices to a boil, add 1 c quick-cooking couscous, remove from heat and cover for 5 min (according to package directions)
when couscous is done, stir in one can of chick peas and some lemon zest.
i added some of my favorite lemon pepper (jane's krazy mixed-up seasoning, http://www.janeskrazy.com/) to taste.
