Lemon and mint combine for a bright, grain-based side dish. Serve this couscous with meals that have a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean flair.
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.
