Organic Fregola (Giant Couscous) is a great one to try if you love couscous.
If tabbouleh style salads are your thing then you will love experimenting with 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.
