CousCous

Couscous is a staple in North African, Moroccan, Tunisian, and Algerian cuisine. Some say that couscous is so good, it was named twice! The name couscous originates from the Arabic word, kaskash, which means to pound into small bits. Couscous is made from durum wheat semolina flour, which is moistened with water and rolled until little balls are formed. A granule of traditional couscous is about the size of a pinhead.

Couscous is a versatile pantry ingredient and can be used as a quick alternative to pasta,rice, quinoa, and noodles. This light, fluffy, and healthier wheat grain is a versatile ingredient that takes on the taste of a recipe’s flavors.

Couscous is delicious both hot and cold and is a popular addition to soups, braises, broths, salads, stews, casseroles, vegetables, breakfast cereals, muffins, baked goods, and even mixed with vegetables.

Add melted butter to warm couscous and sprinkle with fresh herbs, salt and pepper, and cheese and enjoy as a delicious, hearty side dish. Couscous can be used as a filler for beef patties, meatloaf, and other recipes calling for bread crumbs. It is a plant-based food so it is also perfect for a vegetarian or vegan diet, but it is important to note couscous is not gluten-free. Combine couscous with mixed nuts and dried fruit to enhance the nutrient content and enjoy as a healthy snack.
