Expert Tips

  • Israeli couscous, also called pearl couscous, is made from semolina or wheat flour. Larger than traditional couscous, it is cooked more like pasta and has a chewy texture, similar to barley.
  • For a bold taste experience, top each serving with a spoonful of harissa, the spicy and complex Middle Eastern condiment. Offer warm naan on the side.
