Directions

In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add onion, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add couscous and cook, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes more. Add water, saffron and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover pot and simmer until couscous is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in parsley, lemon zest and remaining tablespoon oil. Adjust seasoning to taste.
