Couscous is a main dish in North African cuisines of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania and Libya. This dish became very popular in the middle East also in Europe and United States. Couscous is light and fluffy when it is cooked, it is very easy and simple dish to cook. I like to cook couscous with mixed vegetables and use it as a side dish, I usually add Tilapia and Macaroni salad with the Couscous to have a full meal. It is very light, healthy and very filling. You can cook this recipe in less than 30 minute.
2 cups of couscous
2 cups of mix vegetables
2 cups of chicken broth or water
