Here is for everyone out there looking for something new to try! It is called COUSCOUS!!
My mom would make this all the time when I was a kid and it was one of my absolute favorite things in the world! So naturally I make it for my babies and this is one of those that gets a jumping up and down yelling YAY!! kind of reaction out of them. I am not exaggerating as I know I often do - but not this time. I am for reals! They love this stuff. And I am SHOCKED at the volume of people that have never heard of it! So I decided we must change that. The Near East brand is the kind I prefer and I only like the Original.
Add lots of butter and some salt and it is perfection! It cooks just like rice, very simple easy and quick and tastes similar to a rice. It's delicious, you will not regret it.
