Change up your traditional pasta and rice dishes and serve fresh, wholesome couscous dishes instead! Often thought of as a cross between pasta and rice, couscous is rounded ground semolina, a type of wheat. This Israeli toasted pearl couscous is larger than traditional couscous. When cooked, it has a toasted, nutty taste and a soft, light texture. This 100% natural recipe is also high in protein and iron and low in fat.

The process to prepare couscous from scratch is labor-intensive and time-consuming. This couscous makes it easy to whip up a side dish in an instant. Quickly and easily prepare couscous dishes, and delight your patrons with something new on the menu!

Extremely versatile, the mild flavor of couscous makes a great base for virtually any dish with lamb, shrimp, chicken, and more. Combine couscous with oregano, basil, or your own blend of herbs, seasonings, and vegetables. Create a Mediterranean style salad with chickpeas and feta cheese, an Israeli couscous salad, or a classic tabouli. A staple food in North African and Middle Eastern cuisines, couscous is sometimes the centerpiece of festive dinners and celebrations. Offer delicious entrees in your restaurant or cafe, and your customers are sure to enjoy their meals served with a side of couscous!

    this cous cous costs less than a third of what I was paying and is so much higher quality it's unbelievable! Makes a great side dish and can be used in so many different ways. Buying in bulk just enhances my savings!

    Very interesting! Never had any pearl-size before but quite enjoyable. And found a nice, new use: making a version of tapioca pudding with these plus milk and sweetener.

    This is a great change if you are looking for a good side that is not your normal rice or pasta. I enjoy working with differnt things and these worked well for the day i used it.

    One of the best tasting couscous I have tried. It's a hard to find item in my area, and we use it at home as a side dish. Easy to make as much or as little as you need.

    I think this is a good product, but do not follow the cooking process listed on the package- I cook for only a few minutes, and let rest off the heat to finish absorbing the liquid. Package directions result in overcooked, mushy couscous.

    Compared to other brands of Israeli Couscous, this product is by far the most inferior quality I have ever used or could ever imagine. Even undercooking it results in mushy pasta that will mostly fall apart. Forget following the direction of cooking for 8-10 minutes - right off the bat it shows this brand has no clue what they are doing. This is pasta. A very small pasta. And it will cook fully in under 5 minutes. Larger pastas need 8-10 minutes. The packaging says it will remain "al dente", but serving it raw straight out of the package is the only way to achieve that. I've tried small batches and large and this product is a failure.

    This couscous are larger than we are use to. They are easy to cook and taste good. However, I find this product has a little slim after cooking. My personal preference is drier couscous like the mediterranian style. Taste is a personal thing, not good to some but excellent to others. Not too impress but still good. I rate this as 3 stars.

    The couscous was slightly larger than what I was accustomed to. Surprisingly, it is a great addition to our menu and it is very delicious. Perfect packaging and excellent restaurant quality and value.

    We very much like this product for both flavor and convenience. We would recommend this product and use it in numerous dishes. It has become a staple in our meals over other starches and pasta.
