Couscous question

lawhound05 | Apr 10, 2011 06:23 PM

Is there any trick to preparing couscous? I made it according to the package directions, that is, mixed with boiling water and let sit until the liquid is absorbed. It turned out very lumpy when I tried to serve it, and the lumps didn't break down even after it was covered with a saucy tagine.

Any suggestions? Should I be adding butter or oil to keep it from sticking together? Or is there another trick out there?

Thanks!
