Couscous is a traditional North African and Middle Eastern dish made from precooked coarsely ground semolina, the rich endosperm extracted from durum wheat.
Think of it as tiny little pasta. Then, remind yourself that it cooks "table ready" in a scant 5 minutes.
This Golden Couscous has a slightly nutty flavour and hearty texture. It is high in protein and can be a delicious alternative to traditional pasta and white rice.
Use it as a bed for stew, plant-based meat or vegetables (the way Moroccans do), stir into salads or use as an entre with your favourite pasta sauce.
It will absorb the flavours of whatever spices or sauce you are using, making it versatile for most dishes you'd use rice or other pasta with.
It can also be combined with fruit, almonds, cinnamon and sugar for a simple dessert.
