ABOUT Couscous Soup RECIPE

Couscous is a very common ingredient found in Mediterranean salads. I decided to try out a soup out of it. So here is a healthy one-pot meal of couscous soup which is full of flavour and is a wholesome treat for the elderly and also during pregnancy in moderation. I prepared it in a curried form along with some coriander and mint leaves. The addition of stock gives a very unique taste. You can also use some maggi soup cubes. This nutritious soup when had with a dash of lime gives an extra zing to it.
