  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in the savory, parsley, red pepper flakes, and chicken bouillon granules until the granules dissolve. Pour in the couscous, stir to combine, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Cover and remove from heat. Let cool. Drain off any excess liquid remaining.
  2. Place the cooled couscous in a salad bowl, and lightly combine with lemon zest, almonds, celery, onion, tomato, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper before refrigerating until cold, at least 1 hour.

Yummy!!!!

Absolutely one of the best sides I've ever had. I can't wait to make this again!

I served this as a side dish for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Instead of bouillon granules, I used a bit of chicken broth. I also served at room temperature. The spicy kick is a nice surpri...

The family was split on this one but, since I liked it, I gave it four stars. I served it with grilled lemon chicken. It needs to go with something rather bland because of its strong flavor.

Not very good.

I have made it twice. It smells and tastes like Thanksgiving stuffing, but it's yeast free! I altered the recipe a bit. I looked up the substitute for savory and instead used 1/2 tsp dried thyme...
