Couscous...A Tasty Pasta For a Quick Treat

I ordered a 5 lb. bag through a health food co-op recently, and have to say that this is an interesting pasta, and a potentially time saving soup filler in my kitchen.  Walking through my warehouse store, I found some intriguing containers offered, with a colorful version as well as the plain.  Prepared in a 1 to 1 ratio with liquid, either water or broth, this has a lovely texture and flavor.  I'm thinking about preparing it with a sprinkling of cheese melted and stirred in, just to experiment.  A worthwhile flavor and texture, I found that the price is comparable at Amazon Grocery, with some couscous products available at a 15% discount via the subscribe and save option.

I love couscous. It's pretty common here in the Middle East. For some reason my husband prefers it to most carbs, and with the instant couscous, it's literally ready in five minutes. Such a great side dish. We usually serve it with beef or chicken, and I'll use the juice (or some of it) from cooking the beef/chicken in place of water. Yum!

Oh and thanks for visiting my blog :)
