Transcript:How to Make Moroccan CouscousHi, I'm Roblé for About.com. Today I'm going to show you how to make the perfect Moroccan couscous. Here we go.
Ingredients for Moroccan CouscousHere are our ingredients:
- 2 cups Moroccan couscous
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- blended olive oil
- kosher salt
- black pepper
Before Cooking the CouscousThe first thing you want to do is to get a pot, put it on the stove and put your vegetable stock into the pot. Bring the stock up to a boil. Make sure you cover the pot. While your vegetable stock is coming up to a boil get yourself a large bowl.
Preparing the CouscousPut the couscous into the bowl and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the couscous. Next, you want to take a fork and mix the olive oil into the couscous thoroughly. This will prevent the couscous from sticking together after it's cooked so it is light and fluffy. Next you want to add in two nice pinches of salt. Add a few turns from the pepper mill. Go ahead and started that in as well.
Cooking the CouscousOnce your vegetable stock has come up to a boil you want to slowly whisk it in to the bowl containing the couscous. Makes it thoroughly. Give it a little tap to shake off any little pieces of couscous which are sticking to the walls of the bowl. Next, you want to take some plastic wrap and cover the bowl. Let it sit for 5 to 7 minutes. The couscous will soak up all of the vegetable stock.
After the Moroccan Couscous CooksNow that it is 5 to 7 minutes later and all of the liquid has been soaked up by the couscous, use a fork to comb through the couscous and fluff it up.
So here is your Moroccan couscous. I took the liberty of serving it with some braised oxtails which I topped off with a little bit of fresh thyme.
