I always start off with cooking my couscous in stock, usually chicken or beef. Then I would add vegetables to it. Caramelized onion, saute mushroom, and roasted vegetables are all good.

I also use broth for the cous cous. I like to add either cilantro or parsley, toasted nuts, a dried fruit, and either citrus or mint.

I have use caulliflower as a sub for couscous. Break it down in a food processor until it resembles couscous. Lightly sauté with a bit of stock,oil and cumin. Use like you would couscous.

Again with the stock...but even veggie stock is better than water if you have a vegetarian palate. I also love the Isreali or pearled couscous with a curried vinaigrette, craisins, green onions and toasted pumpkin seeds. It was a huge hit with the riders at the barn this summer!

Chicken stock and a little bit of cayenne. Shallots, cremini mushrooms, red bells sauteed separately and added after the couscous is done cooking. If you want to turn it into a quick and easy dinner just add chicken or steak to the veggies.
