Couscous is produced from durum wheat. This hard wheat is milled to remove the bran and germ. The remaining endosperm, known as semolina, is crushed and then processed with water and flour before being sieved to form couscous. This certified organic couscous has contains no preservatives or artificial additives. Couscous has a light natural wheat flavour and a golden colour. Quick and easy to prepare, organic couscous is a versatile addition to the pantry.
How to Use:
Couscous is very easy and fast to prepare. Simply add 1 cup of organic couscous to 1 cup of boiled water or stock. Water can be lightly salted to taste; Murray River pink salt is a delicious choice. Leave couscous to ‘swell’, covered on the bench for 5-7 minutes. Fluff with a fork and add a little butter or oil and desired spices.
Couscous is ready to serve as an accompaniment to main dishes including curries and hotpots, or can be turned into a salad or complete dish. Add roasted vegetables, mushrooms and tempeh, or diced grilled chicken. Toss with nuts, dried fruit with savoury spices, or add cinnamon and nutmeg with a drizzle of coconut nectar as a delicious dessert. Couscous can also be rehydrated with cold water by soaking for 35-40 minutes.
