Vegetable Couscous

I’m going to be perfectly honest here… I’ve never cooked couscous before this. A few days ago one of my best friends asked me what to do with the couscous she had in her pantry. I had no idea, but since I’m a food blogger now I thought I’d give it a shot. This turned out perfect! I’m actually a little stunned. The couscous absorbed the flavour from the chicken bouillon and the veggies and tastes incredible. I used the Knorr bouillon that isn’t the powder. It’s a liquidy jelly looking one. I think they add way more flavour, but feel free to use a regular bouillon cube. This side dish turned out so amazing, and I can’t wait to make it again!
