How to make Couscous

Couscous is one of the easiest meals to prepare. You aren’t cooking anything. You are basically making a Jollof cereal.

I recommend this for people who do not have time to watch over the food that they are cooking.

This is simply cornflakes on steroids.


1 Cup of Couscous

2 Tablespoon of Cooking Oil

1½ Cup of Meat Broth

1 medium-sized Onion

Green Onions

Curry Powder

Ground Black Pepper

Salt To Taste

1 cup of Chopped vegetable mix (diced carrots, green beans and peas)


  1. Heat your vegetable oil in a pan, preferably non-stick.
  2. Chop your onions and stir them around for a minute inside the oil.
  3. Add in your chopped vegetables.
  4. Season with black pepper, curry and stir for half a minute.
  5. Add in the broth and cook for 2 minutes. Salt to taste.
  6. Add in your couscous and turn off immediately. Leave for 5 minutes. The couscous will absorb the sauce, engorge and cook itself.
  7. Garnish with red pepper flakes and serve with meats.

I used to treat this as Jollof rice and ended up with Jollof swallow instead. 

Never boil the couscous.
