“Refreshing side dish for warm months. To make this vegan, use vegetable broth!” - by KillianZooKeeper
Original recipe yields 3 servings
- Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in the savory, parsley, red pepper flakes, and chicken bouillon granules until the granules dissolve. Pour in the couscous, stir to combine, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Cover and remove from heat. Let cool. Drain off any excess liquid remaining.
- Place the cooled couscous in a salad bowl, and lightly combine with lemon zest, almonds, celery, onion, tomato, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper before refrigerating until cold, at least 1 hour.
