Originally from North Africa, couscous is tiny pearls of semolina pasta that is ready to eat in minutes. Often used as a base for stews, couscous is easy and versatile. This recipe is a perfect match for our Chicken with Tomato-Vermouth Sauce. Couscous can be found in grocery stores near the pasta or rice.

This was good not amazing but good everyday easy side dish. I didn't have crushed rosemary and didn't bother to crush what I had. I wish I did because each rosemary leaf was a little too intense. Read More

This was really good! I didn't have any rosemary handy so I decided to change it up some. I used thyme and a little chicken bouillon. I also mixed in some flax and chia seeds for the added health benefit. This changed the texture some making it almost like a thick risotto. Read More
