Golden Raisin and Pistachio Couscous

If you haven't tried couscous before, this is a great option for side dishes! It soaks up so much flavor from the chicken stock and other just can't go wrong with this as a side dish. (It's not vegetarian as is, but if you swap out the chicken stock for veggie stock...BAM!)

I made my "fancy" and added golden raisins and pistachios to go with my Grilled Moroccan Chicken we cooked up for dinner as well...these both go together like PB&J. Enjoy!



Serves: 2


1 1/2 c. Chicken or Vegetable Stock

1 TBL Unsalted Butter

Salt, to taste

1 cup couscous (can be whole wheat or plain)

1/4 c. Golden Raisins

1/4 c. Shelled Pistachios, chopped


1. Bring stock, butter and salt to boil

2. Add couscous and stir once or twice. Cover and remove from heat to allow couscous to steam for 5-7 minutes.

3. Add raisins and chopped pistachios, fluff with a fork. Enjoy!
