  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup dried couscous
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Pour 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a medium pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the couscous, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit until all the water has absorbed and couscous is puffed, about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium skillet, drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the green onions and sundried tomatoes. Cook until heated through and beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Fluff the couscous with a fork before tossing with the vegetables. Season with the oregano, basil, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with lemon juice right before serving.
