What is couscous?


Couscous orig­i­nates from North Africa and is the sta­ple in­gre­di­ent in the North African diet. Con­sist­ing of many tiny gran­ules made from steamed and dried du­rum wheat, couscous has be­come a pop­u­lar al­ter­na­tive to rice and pasta. It has a light, fluffy tex­ture taht is a lit­tle bland in fla­vor but read­ily soaks up the flavours of other in­gre­di­ents.

The term couscous also refers to dishes made with com­bi­na­tions of meat, vegeta­bles and spices and com­bined with the wheat gran­ules.
