Unlike the popular belief that Couscous is a grain, it is actually a type of Pasta prepared from Semolina & whole wheat flour. The flour is then moistened, tossed together until small balls are formed. Couscous don’t take much time to get cooked. I absolutely love making Upma, fried rice type recipes using Couscous. Once I even made Kesari from Couscous and it tasted amazing 😋😬😬 I miss our traditional millets and the texture of Couscous reminds me that.
I have made Couscous Salad before with Tofu and this one is a slight twist to the regular Mediterranean flavors. Made a fresh batch of Basil Pesto yesterday and thought of using it as a dressing for this salad. Very easy to put together but has a good mix of Carbs, Proteins,Fibre & Fat.
My Day 5 dinner bowl had Couscous, fresh veggies, kidney beans & pesto
