Organic Fregola Giant Couscous

From: £3.98

(£3.98 inc. VAT)



Organic Fregola is a great one to try if you love couscous.

If tabbouleh style salads are your thing then you will love experimenting with organic fregola.  This giant couscous, as the name suggests, is oversized and this makes it more plump and absorbent.

Couscous makes great tabbouleh and is perfect for hearty salads and side dishes. Organic Fregola is a less common option for couscous lovers, it is harder to find than the traditional couscous but it can be used in recipes in the same way.

To make couscous the wheat is moistened and then sprayed into a special oven which helps form the little particles of couscous. The particles are partially cooked under steam, dried and then gently cracked into smaller pieces.

Couscous is similar to pasta in some ways but it is lightly crushed instead of ground so it is less refined.  It is particularly popular in Middle Eastern and North African cuisines but can now be found almost anywhere – although fregola or giant couscous is less common.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Bring salted water to the boil and add your fregola.
  2. There should be 3 parts of water to 2 parts of fregola.
  3. Boil for 15 minutes so the fregola can plump up and absorb the boiling water.
  4. Fluff with a fork before serving and combine with herbs and seasoning of choice.


For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight.  Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.


Family Tip:

  1. Organic fragola goes great in a tabbouleh style garden salad with fresh herbs and finely chopped vegetables.
  2. Cold Salads keep well for a couple of days in the fridge and make a great quick lunch that seems to taste better each day.
  3. Giant couscous can also be used in the place of rice and other grains in any recipe and combines well with quinoa.
