Couscous Recipe

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I tired searching the thread, but the search keeps teeling me that my search criteria is too short. So I'm posting this question.


Who has a great Couscous recipe? I have tried a few, and I can not get my family to eat it. I like it, but it IS kinda plain and i would like to do something to it. I have tired evoo, a little salt, some parmesan cheese, & a sundried tomato mixture, but its always been eh. Any thoughts?

(How funny is it that we reactivated our accounts on the same day at about the same time?!) Didn't you make the Tropical Couscous once? I thought you did... I could swear I remember you giving me some. Either way, here's the recipe. I also think the search feature isn't working.



1 cup(s) water

1 tsp table salt, divided

1 cup(s) uncooked whole wheat couscous

1/4 cup(s) fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp canola oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 cup(s) mango(es), fresh, cubed

1 cup(s) pineapple, Golden-variety, chopped

1/2 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, chopped

1/4 cup(s) red onion(s), fresh, chopped




  • Bring water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a boil in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in couscous; cover and let stand until water is absorbed and couscous is tender, about 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork; cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, cumin and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt until blended. Add mango, pineapple, cilantro and onion; toss to mix.
  • Add couscous to fruit mixture; toss to mix and coat. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day. Yields about a heaping 3/4 cup per serving.

The search function does not work. The best thing to do is to Google whatever you are looking for with the words "health discovery bootcamp" and results from here will come up in your results!! Good luck!!!! Be well.
