Couscous is made from Semolina Flour, which is the roughly milled endosperms of Durum Wheat. The Semolina is moistened with water and rolled until little balls are formed. A granule of Couscous is about the size of a pin head. Couscous is very versatile. Couscous is used in place of rice, as a side salad, added to soups, mixed with sauted vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal. Couscous originated in Northern Africa. Couscous has recently captured the imagination and attention of many Americans.
Suggested Use: Serve Traditional Couscous with marinated, broiled vegetables, flavor with garlic and onion as a side dish to meats and poultry. Cooked chilled Couscous makes a super salad ingredient. Use a bed of Couscous instead of rice with curries or stir fry meals. Combine with Harrisa Sauce for a spicy side dish.
