Israeli couscous are tiny balls of lightly toasted pasta dough, and they are absolutely delicious!
It is the perfect addition to whatever meat you are cooking and kids love them.
How can I make it dairy-free for lactose-intolerance?
Just replace the butter with 1 tablespoon of oil.
How can I make it vegan?
Replace the chicken broth with vegetable stock or water and take out the butter.
Can I add vegetables?
You can also add onion or mushrooms as well (same cooking time):
Can I double the amount?
Yes. If you want to double up the quantity and make 16 ounce pack, use 2 ½ cups of chicken broth.
Cooking time stays the same - cook for 5 minutes and once done do a quick pressure release.
How about a one-pot meal?
I got a burn message! What to do?
If you see the Instant Pot burn message on the display, and hear some annoying beeps, just ignore it all for 5 minutes and than do a quick pressure release. Don't worry - the taste and the texture would still be great - Trust me :]
The burn message on this case just means that you added too less water, so next time, for the same amount, brand and type, add a little more water.
It happened to me one time when I used a different brand, and although I thought that dinner is ruined, I still got a delicious Israeli couscous!
