More About This Recipe

What Goes Well With Couscous?

Couscous takes on flavors very well, which makes it perfect for many different types of dishes. In this recipe you’ll see that it’s mixed with raisins and nuts, but it also works well mixed with cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta cheese, or prepared simply with butter and served with a protein of your choosing.

Is Couscous a Grain or Pasta?

Couscous is generally thought of as a grain, similar to rice or barley, since that’s where it’s generally found in most grocery stores, but it’s actually a pasta!

When I was making this recipe, I thought it seemed like too much water. Usually making couscous I use a ratio of one to one, couscous to water. It is way too much water, it never was able to be fluffed. I’m glad I hadn’t added the pecans to it, which the recipe only had it in the ingredient list, so I was going to had them after I fluffed the couscous. This recipe sounded so good, but I was disappointed. I may make it again with an adjustment to the water.
