Directions to cook couscous: In a saucepan, heat olive oil. Add onions and cook for 1 minute, until glossy (do not brown). Add couscous and stir until well coated with oil. Season with salt and add 1 cup of chicken stock. Stir occasionally until 2/3 of the liquid is absorbed. Add the remaining cup of stock, and continue to cook until al dente.
