This quick side dish is cooked in the Instant Pot®. Feel free to add in Parmesan cheese if desired, but it's amazing on its own! I don't add salt or pepper, as the ingredients seem to have enough flavor on their own.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Fluff with a fork and add sliced mushrooms. Select Saute function and quickly stir the couscous for 3 to 5 minutes. The goal is to warm the mushrooms, but not to the point of softening.
