Ahh, couscous. We love you because you’re basically pasta masquerading as a grain and because you’re as easy to make as boiling a pot of water.
But until Meghan Markle published Together: Our Community Cookbook , we didn’t know how tasty you could be.

Sound like a whole lot of extra? It’s worth it: The results are twice as fluffy, royal promise.
