Couscous with World Wide Flavor
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Couscous is made from wheat and is used world-wide now. As an ancient food in Northern Africa and Northern Asia, it was made from millet. Here is a great recipe for our modern kitchens. This was served at a recent Women Wine and Dine group and everyone loved it. If you have Stonewall Kitchens Roasted Garlic Onion Jam, add a few tablespoons of that to the warm couscous. I used the Sicilian canned tuna.
2 cups couscous (8.8 oz. toasted pearl couscous from Israel is great)
In glass or ceramic batter bowl, combine couscous, water, salt, and pepper. Cover with glass lid or plate. Cook in microwave 5-8 minutes. (It depends on the couscous, the pearl kind will take the longer time.) Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool. When ready to serve, combine remaining ingredients with couscous and pile into a beautiful bowl and serve.
