Easy Israeli Couscous with Parmesan is a one-pot wonder meal. Few ingredients with mind-blowing taste!


  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Israeli Couscous
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 Tablespoon Parsley or Chives
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Place the water in a medium-sized pot on the stove on high. Add a pinch of salt.
  2. Once the water is boiling, add in couscous and turn down to medium-high. Let boil for 8 minutes or until al dente and almost fully cooked.
  3. Once the couscous is almost finished cooking (there should just be a small amount of water not absorbed yet) remove from the heat and add in 1 tablespoon of butter.
  4. While the butter is melted, add in a generous amount of freshly cracked black pepper and stir to combine everything.
  5. Add in freshly grated parmesan cheese and stir till combined. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  6. Serve immediately with fresh chopped parsley or chives on top.
