Couscous can really make your dinner pop! Like pasta, couscous is made from granules of durum wheat and is generally steamed, though it can also be boiled or even just soaked until it reaches a fluffy and airy consistency. It's often compared to rice in terms of texture and flavor. Add chicken or beef to the dish for a hearty meal, or try mixing in a few mild spices and herbs like garlic or rosemary to make a flavorful and exciting dish. Veggies such as corn, green beans or squash also work well.
