Good to know…
You can leave out the onion if you don’t like onion. You can also make this a day in advance. Want to know a good trick? Once the couscous is ready they solidify and cool. If you break it apart with your hands they won’t stick together again.
Serve with breadsticks + onion and mushroom soup
