I have recently discovered that rice, potatoes, tortillas, pasta and bread have a new friend in my pantry; Couscous.
This is a grain found an eaten in North Africa. The brand I used is the Dari Couscous Morocco. It is simple to cook.
- In a bowl mix 2 1/4 cups of couscous with 2 1/2 cups of boiled water.
- Add 2 Tbsp oil and salt to taste.
- Stir then leave covered for about 4 min.
- Separate the grains using a fork and microwave for 2 min.
Eat couscous with your favorite meat. I love it with baked chicken (click on picture above) and some type of veggie. Tomatoes are great.
Or add mint leave,green onions, tomatoes, cucumber , parsley, olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste and create a salad; Taboulé. Simply Delicious!
