Use your rice cooker to make perfectly fluffy couscous in just minutes! It’s a great hands-off way to make this simple side dish.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 cup water or broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)


  1. Add the couscous, water or broth, and salt to the rice cooker.
  2. Cover with the lid and set the rice cooker to cook.
  3. It will cook in about 4-5 minutes. Once the water has evaporated, the rice cooker should shut off automatically, or it may switch to warm. Turn off the rice cooker as soon as the couscous is cooked.
  4. Fluff with a fork and enjoy!
