WHAT IS COUSCOUS?
Couscous is a tiny pasta made from wheat or barley. It becomes fluffy when cooked, has a firm texture, and is great for a quick side dish or to use as a stuffing for vegetables.
Couscous comes in three sizes: Moroccan - the smallest in size and ‘cooks’ by soaking and absorbing boiling liquid; Israeli - also called pearl couscous and cooks in about 10 minutes; Lebanese - the largest in size and also takes the longest to cook.
