Organic couscous is made using hulled durum wheat semolina. Couscous cooks into a light fluffy consistency and makes great salads.
Couscous is perfect for tabbouleh and is fab in hearty salads and side dishes. Couscous is a natural whole food option for couscous lovers, this white variety is soft and absorbent. We also stock organic wholemeal couscous, organic spelt couscous and organic fregola (giant couscous)
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 wholemeal couscous is less common.
