This Israeli Couscous dish is very easy to make and so very delicious! Israeli couscous is a Mediterranean tiny toasted pasta made of crushed and steamed semolina that is shaped like rice or little balls. This couscous, known as ptitim, is a larger and heartier texture than most couscous. Karen likes to serve this dish with her Spicy Asian Chicken with Citrus as it makes a light and tasty side dish.
In a large pot over medium-high heat, saute onion and garlic in butter until softened.
Add chicken stock and bring just to a boil; reduce heat to medium and add Israeli Couscous. Cover pot; reduce heat to low and let simmer approximately 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until done. Remove from heat.
Add lemon juice and parsley; stir to combine.
Makes 4 servings.
