COUSCOUS, MOROCCAN

CC-5

Description:

Couscous is made from Semolina Flour, which is the roughly milled endosperms of Durum Wheat. The Semolina is moistened with water and rolled until little balls are formed. A granule of Couscous is about the size of a pin head and bland in flavor. Couscous is very versatile. Couscous is used in place of rice, as a side salad, added to soups, mixed with sauteed vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal. Couscous originated in Northern Africa. Couscous has recently captured the imagination and attention of many Americans.

Ingredient Statement:

Durum Wheat Semolina. (Contains Wheat, Gluten)

Serve Couscous with marinated, broiled vegetables, flavor with garlic and onion as a side dish to meats and poultry. Cooked chilled Couscous makes a super salad ingredient. Use a bed of Couscous instead of rice with curries or stir fry meals. Combine with Harrisa Sauce for a spicy side dish.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Traditional couscous does not need to be rinsed and only requires steeping. Cook 1 cup of couscous with 1½ cups of liquid for 10 minutes over low heat. Or, pour 1½ cups of water over 1 cup couscous. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
