Melt the butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the thyme and cook until fragrant, a few seconds. Add the corn, scallions, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the scallions are softened, about 1 minute. Add 1 cup couscous, stir, and then add 1 cup of boiling water and the cayenne and stir again.
Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork,
stir in 2 Tbs. crumbled blue cheese, and season to taste with salt and
pepper. Serve hot or at room temperature.
