Test Kitchen Tip

Wait to stir in the mint until just before serving, so it remains a vibrant green color.


Boil water, lemon juice, oil, sugar, salt, and zest in a saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in couscous, cover, and steam until liquid is absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork and stir in mint before serving.
