Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 people
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 1 cup couscous
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 4 small onions
- 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
- a bunch parsley
- a few splashes soy sauce
Heat the water for the couscous in a large pot, add in the lime juice and salt.
Once the water is boiling, take the pot off the stovetop and add in the couscous and put the lid back on (the couscous will be ready in a minute or two).
Meanwhile peel the onions and cut them in rings & chop the parsley.
Heat a large pan with the canola oil and place the onion rings in there. Cook them for a few minutes on medium-high heat while stirring constantly, season with the soy sauce, and keep them on the heat until they cook down and get a nice brown color.
Fluff the couscous with a fork, add in the quick caramelized onions and chopped parsley and give it a good mix. Serve warm or cold!
