Lemon Couscous

Lemons are valuable in oh so many ways in the kitchen.  They bring freshness in their look and in flavor.  To me, nothing says “Fresh” more than a bowl of beautiful lemons as a center piece on the table.  Nothing says “Fresh” more than the slight tang that lemons bring to both savory and baked products.  They make your “tongue dance” as Kai and I always refer to it.

This Lemon Couscous is a light, refreshing and healthy side dish as a substitute to pasta or rice.  Its flavors are present, yet subtle, and the dish goes amazingly well served with Greek Meatballs.

Lemon Couscous


  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
