What is couscous and how to use it?

While couscous looks like a grain, this North African ingredient is more like a pasta, made with semolina flour from crushed durum wheat. Our all-natural couscous is par-cooked, which makes it a quick side dish you can prepare in about 10 minutes or so. Use it as a side with chicken, lambfish, and vegetarian dishes. In this tutorial, you’ll learn all about how to cook and use couscous.

How to Make Couscous (Basic Instructions)

In saucepan, boil 1 cup water. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 cup couscous, and pinch of salt. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes off heat until couscous has absorbed all the liquid. Separate couscous gently using a fork and serve.
