Details

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.

This bag of Israeli toasted pearl couscous makes it easy to whip up a side dish in an instant. To prepare it, start by sauteing the couscous in oil. Then add 1 1/4 cups of boiling water and mix the couscous in a pan. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes and stir occasionally. Once the water is absorbed, fluff it with a fork and this couscous is ready to serve.

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!

    I bought these couscous because the price was really good. I wasn't sure how the quality would be, but we were pleasantly surprised how good they were.
    Great product. Cooks very well. It's a larger size couscous that really emphasizes the pasta and lets it stand out in the dishes you make with it.
    There is a lightly toasted flavor which will really come alive if sautéed beforehand, the size was a bit larger then the brand I used in the the past, also you may want to watch cooking time as ours was done before the recommended time, overall a good value
    israeli couscous is a really nice change of pace when you want something different than the same old pasta or grain. this toasted version from webstaurantstore tastes great, cooks perfectly every time (with instructions right on the bag) and comes at a great price for such a large amount. it's a really fantastic product.
    The Israel toasted pearl couscous are great noodles and taste great in our soups and stews. The couscous cooks up tender and adds a nice texture to our soups.
    This couscous is so quick and easy to make. You can add so many different ingredients to it and make so many different dishes. Great find!
    The Israeli toasted pearl couscous is a great specialty pasta type and cooks up big and fluffy. They are great for adding to our vegetable noodle soup.
    An awesome pasta at an incredible price. You will not find the quality for the price anywhere else. The Israeli toasted pearl couscous is a great ingredient and perfect for our chicken couscous soup. The couscous boils up great.
    this is a very nice israeli couscous. i overcooked it a little bit on accident and it still had a nice texture and wasn't at all mushy. the directions on the bag were easy to follow and worked a treat. all in all i'm very happy with this
    This Couscous is a great product and a great value. The directions on the package could use a bit of tweaking though. I have prepared it several times, and I find it best to sauté the couscous first in a little olive oil then add the boiling water(or stock) in a one to one ratio. Return to a boil and simmer till just al-dente. 6 or 7 minutes. For extra flavor and color, I've even started with sautéed onion and red pepper.
    The particle of this couscous is bigger than I thought. After cooking, it almost looks like beans. Bit soft. not familiar texture is covered with great price. I mainly use it add to the salad.
    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.
    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.
    This is an excellent product for the price. Easy preparation and great tasting couscous. Definitely planning on keeping this item in stock in our family pantry.
