So, what is cous cous?

Couscous is a small, grain-like food made from semolina wheat. This North African staple has become popular worldwide for its versatility and quick cooking time. It has a slightly nutty flavor and a fluffy texture that makes it perfect for absorbing sauces and spices. Couscous is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, fiber, and plant-based protein, making it a nutritious addition to any meal. It can be served as a side dish, mixed with vegetables and herbs for a refreshing salad, or used as a base for stews and tagines. Whether you're looking for a filling and healthy meal or a quick and easy side dish, couscous is a must-try ingredient.
