Cous Cous recipe

http://www.britishlarder.co.uk/north-af … z2IeiwNXOv
This is a nice one, to try.
I found out Ras-el-Hanout
Translates to head of the shop.
It is the head of the shops choice as to what the spice mix is.
I actually used Tagine paste, I also used Elderflower vinegar instead of sherry vinegar, the first time I made it, it is better than sherry vinegar. The point being there is room for manoeuvre with this recipe.
Always good with my eclectic store cupboard.

Re: Cous Cous recipe

A good sherry vinegar has a great rich depth of flavour , elderflower vinegar , I have never had but I imagine it to be a far lighter flavour . But I could see it would still work .

In the UK most people tend to just pour boiling water over the couscous to rehydrate it , it does not seem to get steamed and rubbed as it does in some other countries.

Re: Cous Cous recipe

Great if you like cous cous.  For me it's the most overrated thing on the market.  Tasteless and only works with a great deal of flavour added.

Re: Cous Cous recipe

Who on earth would eat it without stuff added? No offence meant.

It isn't meant to be eaten unadorned.

Re: Cous Cous recipe

I love cous-cous, i always rub it with my hands coated in olive oil, add a little salt too.
I love it served with meats and/or vegs or served cold with chopped mint and tomatoes to accompany other side dishes or a BBQ.

Re: Cous Cous recipe

I think cous cous is one of those love/hate things.....a  bit like Marmite...

...Personally, I'd rather eat something else as an accompaniament to whatever I'm cooking...
