Chickeny Couscous with Blue Cheese

My wife doesn't like sweet breakfasts and is bored with buttered toast. Here's a fast-to-make couscous concoction with lots of savory flavors. Also suitable as a dinner side-dish. Ingredients are for 1 serving.

Put in a microwaveable bowl:

  • About 1 to 1½ tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil (Toscano is extra-yummy). Replace part of the olive oil with butter if you want.
  • 1 teaspoon "Better Than Bouillon" roasted chicken base.
  • ⅔ cup hot water
  • ⅓ cup couscous (the fine-grained variety, not the BBs)

Heat in microwave until shortly before it boils over. Stir, then microwave at 10% power for 6 minutes.

Top with:

  • A generous quantity of smoked paprika
  • A few tablespoonfuls of crumbled or chopped-up blue cheese.
