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!

People Talk About:

couscous great larger nice price quality cooks israeli pasta toasted

Customer Reviews

         

Great quality and love that it's already toasted. Makes cooking it much faster, but quality for the price is really good. Only issue is that I wish it came in a larger bag without smaller bags together. Still -- happy!

Rachel M. from Dry Goods Refillery on 08/23/2020
         

This is pretty tasty couscous. It's got a nice texture to it, too. Since it's Israeli, the pearls are enormous. Maybe larger than I expected. But still cook fine.

Maxwell B. from Bernstein Bear Baking on 05/21/2020
         

This is one of my favorites! The size of the couscous is nice and it cooks up well. The taste and quality is very good. We make homemade dog food in large quantities for rescue pooches and this is a great alternative for rice and other grains. Would recommend and would purchase again!

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.

T A. from Mom's Bakery on 07/01/2019
         

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.

Dave E. from Richardson Farms on 06/01/2019
         

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

Mark N. on 06/12/2017
         

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.

Myeongji K. from Bar Cold Dawn on 11/25/2016
         

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!

Ronald P. on 08/11/2016
         

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.

Gale B. on 08/03/2016
         

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.

Don R. from Youth With A Mission on 05/24/2016
         

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.

Oliver C. on 05/11/2016
         

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.

Molly M. on 02/09/2016
         

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.

Jose T. on 12/01/2014
         

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.

Dr. A. on 10/16/2014
         

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.

Scott B. on 07/23/2014
         

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.
