Lemony couscous

Lemony Couscous

Couscous goes so well with a variety of dishes. I particularly like it with Moroccan dishes like Chicken Tajine or any dish which will have a sauce so it can absorb the liquid and infuse it with its flavors.

This particular recipe gives it a nice zest with lemon zest and freshness with chopped parsley.
