Place the tomato juice in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer on medium-high heat.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
Pour 1/2 of the simmering tomato juice over the couscous then mix. Fully incorporate the rest of the liquid with the couscous.
Cover with a plate or foil then place in a warm area for 10 minutes. (Over the stove works well for this.)
Fluff the couscous with a fork and break up large clumps. Serve warm.
This recipe makes 8 side portions.
