Quick Couscous with Sultanas and Carrots

I make this when I need a quick side dish for chicken or pork. If you make couscous a pantry staple, you usually have all the ingredients on hand! Use other veggies (zucchini, corn, peas, etc.) or veggie stock to make it your own.

Serves: 6 

  • 65g butter
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) water
  • 1 1/2 cups (285g) uncooked couscous
  • 1/4 cup (45g) sultanas

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook and stir the carrots and onion until the carrots begin to soften and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in the chicken stock and water and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the couscous, mixing well to avoid lumps, cover and remove from the heat. Let the couscous stand covered until the water is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the sultanas and serve hot.
