Turmeric-Mint Couscous

This couscous recipe is so easy to whip up and has so much flavor.  Couscous is one of those go-to weeknight sides because it takes no time at all to cook and can be made with so many different flavors to suite any situation. 

This is my take on a fresh Mediterranean flavor.  We were looking for a good side dish to go with our Za’atar crusted chicken and these flavors just jumped out at us.  Credit goes to my husband, who has an intuitive ability to come up with flavor profiles. 

I use chicken broth for my couscous as I like the rich flavor it provides, but you could use water or veggie broth and this would be a completely vegan dish!
