The pearl of couscous is halfway between pasta and couscous. It cooks like pasta or rice. Also known as Israeli couscous (ptitim in Israel) or Jerusalem couscous with grains that are a bit larger than the regular couscous. The Toasted Pearl Couscous consists of small balls of toasted, crushed semolina flour, 100% Israeli pearl couscous.

Perfect for making salads and side dishes. Its texture is slightly chewy with pleasant nutty flavor. It can be added to salads or used on its own with soups, stews, or sauce to add more flair and body. It is also delicious with a confit of low rib of veal. It is also known for dishes like tajine or the traditional couscous.

Add herbs such as fresh thyme, saffron, lemon juice and garlic flakes to the water before boiling to make it more savory. Serve with roasted peppers, mushrooms, and feta.

Worth a shot
If you aren't used to coucous, this is totally worth a try. It is great to work with and fun. Its nutty flavor makes it even more interesting when added to vegetables or any main meal with chicken or fish. Serve some mediterranean dish at home, I highly recommend.
