Make Ahead: Treat it like you would cooked rice, If you’re planing to serve it warm, reheat it very gently in the microwave oven or on the stove for a minute or two. On the stove, just fry it without any oil, oil will encourage clumping.
To jazz up this plain couscous, you can add vegetables, nuts, seeds, dried fruit or cheese, there are so many ways to go with this. However, if I’m serving it with tagine, I prefer to leave it fairly plain, so that it can show off the flavour of the tagine.
