  • In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the couscous and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add 2 cups of water, cover and cook over low heat until the couscous is tender and all of the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Transfer the couscous to a bowl.
