Couscous, made from cracked or coarsely ground wheat, resembles pasta. The couscous you’ll find in grocery stores is precooked — just add boiling water, let it sit, then fluff with a fork. This flavorful side dish is easy to make and only requires 5 ingredients to make.
Boil water and oil in a saucepan. Stir in mint and basil; cook 20 seconds. Transfer mixture to a food processor and purée until smooth but still hot, about 10 seconds. Pour hot purée over couscous in a bowl; stir, then cover with plastic wrap. Allow couscous to stand until liquid is absorbed, 4–5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork before serving. Serve with Grilled Lamb Chops.
