Couscous is a delicious, nutritious pasta made with semolina flour mixed with water that’s associated with Morocco. It’s easy to cook, and there’s no end to what you can do with it. These couscous recipes can make great side dishes or entrees. They’re also great for batch cooking.

This is one of the most versatile grains you can keep in your pantry. Like rice, it stores well so you can buy it in bulk and save money.

In fact, if you can’t find it in your local grocery stores, you can order regular couscous or instant couscous online. If you’ve never cooked or eaten it before, now’s the time to start!

One of the best things about this dish is how short the cooking and prep time are. Some of these recipes can be made in about 20 minutes. Very few take more than 30, unless they need some time in the slow cooker.

Note: couscous is not gluten free. For that, you’ll need quinoa recipes.
