Rainbow Couscous is a Traditional Couscous blended with a balanced proportion of Spinach and Tomato flavored/colored Couscous. Rainbow couscous offers a chef a colorful presentation with minimal labor. Couscous originated in Northern Africa. 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 saut?ed vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal.
Durum Wheat Semolina, contains 2% or less of Tomato Powder, Spinach Powder, Annatto & Alfalfa Extracts for color. (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:
Rainbow Couscous does not require rinsing; only steeping. Cook 1 cup of couscous with 1½ cups of liquid for 10 minutes over low heat. Or pour 1½ cups of boiling water over 1 cup couscous, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
