Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups homemade chicken stock or canned broth
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 zucchini, large dice
  • 1 1/2 cups couscous (10 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped basil leaves
  • 1 cup chopped parsley leaves

Method

Step 1

Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a small saucepan, and turn off the heat. Add the salt, pepper, cumin, and saffron threads and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and melt the butter in a saute pan. Add the zucchini and cook for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Bring the chicken stock just back to a boil. Place the couscous in a large bowl and add the cooked zucchini. Pour the hot chicken stock over them. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and allow to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Add the basil and parsley. Toss the couscous and herbs with a fork, and serve warm or at room temperature.
