1 tablespoon canola oil

1 1/2 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth or water

1/2 cup chopped scallions

1 cup plain couscous

2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, optional

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the oil and chicken broth or water, and bring to a simmer. Stir in the scallions and couscous and cover the pan. Remove the pan from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. When the couscous has absorbed all the liquid, fluff it with a fork, and add the parsley, if using, and salt and pepper. Serve warm.
