Rice and Couscous Pilaf!

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

I made this last week and it was a real hit! Everyone had seconds! Problem is it was a “wing it” recipe which means I didn’t write it down! Oh boy! I hope I can remember it correctly and make it good again! Have you tried Israeli Couscous before? I really like it! It is larger than regular couscous and it truly blends well with rice! It is also great in soups!

Serves 6



  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup Israeli Couscous
  • ½ cup jasmine rice
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tsp. parsley flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


In a large skillet that has a cover heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until it is slightly translucent.


Add couscous and cook while stirring often until it turns a golden brown.


Add garlic and rice and stir to coat with the oil.


Now add the broth and parsley. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
