Pearl couscous, also known as Israeli couscous, has always been one of my favorites for a long time. This dish is perfect for summer and any backyard barbecue. It's a refreshing side dish, or even as a meal on it's own. I like to grab leftovers for lunch when I don't have time in between meetings to make anything. Another great thing about it is that you can eat it hot or cold. Both taste great! It's a sheet pan meal, which makes things even easier.


This recipe was inspired by one that I saw on tiktok. It's crazy how many recipe ideas I get from there and just all of the food inspiration you can come across.
