extra virgin olive oil
(1 large clove)
low-sodium chicken broth
(or vegetable broth)
fresh lemon juice
or more to taste (optional)*
cup (6 oz)
(not pearl couscous)
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add garlic and saute until fragrant (not toasting and browning or it will be bitter!), about 20 seconds.
Remove from heat, pour in chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice and season with salt to taste. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
Pour in couscous, stir then remove from heat and immediately cover with lid. Let rest 4 - 5 minutes off heat.
Add parsley and fluff with a fork. Finish with a little more olive oil or broth to moisten if desired and serve warm.
*Other herb options that would be delicious here as a substitute for parsley are basil, cilantro, dill, or mint.
