Do you know what Couscous is? Wait, let’s back up, do you know how to pronounce Koos-Koos? Well I’ll be honest, I was a Couscous virgin until tonight. I heard great things, versatile, light, fluffy, easy, you name it, it was said about couscous. So when I came across a whole grain couscous you know I HAD to try it. And all those things people said about it are SO true. The only way I can describe the small pasta is fun!
Using equal parts liquid to Couscous it literally takes 5 minutes to prepare. Bring the liquid (and I say liquid because you can use anything, water, broth, juice, stock, whatever!) to a boil, remove from heat, add the couscous and cover. That’s it! I can see it as a side dish, in soups, stews are even the main course, like my leftover turkey Couscous and Stuffed Peppers.
So I’m late to the couscous party but I know some of you have been using it for some time. What is your favorite way to prepare couscous?
