Couscous is a traditional food from Northern African cultures, and consists of small balls of durum wheat or semolina flour. It is often mistaken for a grain, but it is actually the same dough that is made into many pastas.
It is a culinary ingredient used as a substitution for rice or quinoa, it is very versatile, and its preparation requires little more than the addition of hot water and fluffing with a fork, then served as a side dish or in recipes, taking on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. Ways to serve Couscous include adding it to soups, mixing it with sautéed vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal.
