Couscous is one of my pantry staples. Why? Well, it is healthy, quick to cook, filling, versatile and easy on the wallet. So, why not? And this is a perfect way to use up your herb bounty during the summer months. I tend to serve this lemon, lime and herb couscous with the ‘sweeter’ stews, curries or vegetables to cut through their sweetness. —Bintu
