Recipe: Couscous

If you've ever been to the Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom you'll know that the menu is very similar to that of Boma - Flavors of Africa. For good reason, the menu was created by the same chefs.

One side dish that is a staple in African, as well as Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Moroccan restaurants is couscous. It is traditional served with meat or vegetable stew.

2 cups vegetable stock
5 each fresh basil leaves
8 ounces Israeli couscous (approximately 1¼ cup)
¼ cup butter blend
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Bring vegetable stock to boil. 
  2. Add fresh basil and simmer. 
  3. Add Israeli couscous and cook until liquid is absorbed. 
  4. Season with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Adjust to taste.
