Here’s a deliciously different side that features Israeli couscous cooked in a kickin’ combination of curry powder and a savory vegetable broth. It’s chilled before it’s mixed with raisins, toasted almonds, lemon juice, lemon zest and green onions. It’s uniquely flavored and would make an impressive party salad!

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the couscous and curry powder and cook and stir for 2 minutes or until the couscous is lightly browned.
Stir in the broth and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the broth is absorbed. Remove the couscous mixture to a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Grate 2 teaspoons zest and squeeze 3 tablespoons juice from the lemon. Stir the remaining oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, raisins, almonds and green onion into the couscous mixture. Season to taste.
This is a great recipe!
I followed the instructions to a T only change what I had no control over (minor I think). I didn't have regular raisins but had yellow ones.; other than missing the extra colour great. No almonds, substituted sweet red pepper julienned; really good. This is a great recipe and I will definitely be making it again. I did choose Israeli couscous instead of pearl - love the texture more.
