There is some mystery to the history of couscous. Some historians suggest that it's likely that couscous spread from Northern Africa along the Mediterranean coast through travel, trade, and migration. Regardless, it's a light grain made from semolina that can be prepared very quickly, so has been a staple for families and busy people for centuries.
The 'Casablanca Couscous' from Melbournes 'From Basque with Love' is a meal kit that contains couscous (phew!), almonds, sultanas, dried garlic, dried shallots, and FBWL's Moroccan spice blend. Combine with equal parts boiling water and a table spoon of olive oil, then cover for 5 minutes while the grains and aromatics rehydrate. Fluff with a fork, and then serve as a main, or as a side along with meat, vegetables or fish.
