Instant Pot Couscous

Ready in only a few minutes, Instant Pot Couscous is very simple to make and an easy side dish to any dinner! Serve this couscous plain or add veggies for a well-rounded dish!

Press the saute button on your Instant Pot. Add the olive oil and the couscous. Cook the couscous for 2 minutes.

After 2 minutes, press cancel on the saute function. Add the chicken broth to the Instant Pot and the Italian seasoning.

Close the lid of the Instant Pot and make sure the knob on the lid is in the sealing position. Select pressure cook and set the cooking time to zero minutes on high pressure.

Once the Instant Pot comes up to pressure, quick release the pressure. Carefully open the lid and fluff the couscous with a fork.

Using low sodium broth allows you to control the salt content in the couscous.

The Instant Pot will take 5-10 minutes to come up to pressure and then will stop cooking since we set the time to zero minutes.
