Organic Couscous - 400g or 800g

Wholewheat couscous is a wonderful, versatile pasta made by milling whole durum wheat, leaving the rich yellow endosperm granules called semolina which is then mixed with small amount of water to form small granules of pasta.

It can be served as a breakfast cereal, dressed as a salad, and sweetened for a dessert. Its most common use is as accompaniment for stew or savoury sauce, much like rice. Couscous provides a low fat source of fibre and complex carbohydrates, with practically 'zero' sugars.


To cook: Add 1 1/2 cups boiling water or stock and a knob of butter (or olive oil) to 1 cup couscous in a bowl. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Then fluff up with a fork.

  • Couscous can also be used in the place of rice and other grains in any recipe and combines well with quinoa.

  • Durum is a variety of hard wheat that has a higher protein and gluten content than other kinds of wheat. Whole wheat couscous contains more soluble and insoluble fiber and micronutrients compared to its refined version.
