  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • cups chicken broth

  • teaspoons salt

  • cups couscous

  • 1

    cup golden raisins

  • 1

    bunch (about 8 total) green onions

  • 3

    slices pancetta

  • 1

    cup hulled sunflower seeds

  • ½

    cup butter

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Place the chicken broth into a large pot and add the salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the couscous and raisins, then remove from heat. Allow it to sit, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed by the couscous. Chop the green onions into 1-inch long sections, and roughly chop the pancetta. Combine green onions, pancetta, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl and mix. Cut the butter into 8 pieces and add to the bowl. Pour the hot couscous on top and stir (using tongs helps to get everything mixed in well) until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot.
