If you’re bored with rice or pasta, then try couscous. It’s delicious and easy to prepare. Traditional in North African cuisine, couscous may be served as a side dish or in recipes. Nutritionally, it’s low fat (1 gram per cup), cholesterol-free and relatively high in protein for a wheat product (6 grams per cup). There are three types of couscous (Moroccan, Israeli & Lebanese) that differ in size. I used the medium Israeli couscous that I purchased from Willy Street Coop. In the video, the recipe calls for steaming the couscous for approximately 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. However, since this is a larger grain you may want to wait 10 minutes. Enjoy!
