Couscous is an excellent way to boost your whole grain intake! This whole grain couscous is very versatile, easily absorbing all types of delicious flavours and seasonings, as desired. Try it plain as a base to serve a curry or stew over, or use it as the base of your next cold salad! (We love to make our couscous salad with dried cranberries, slivered almonds and a little curry mayo—yum!!) Because of its fine texture, couscous can be substituted for rice in many dishes, such as casseroles and soups.

Ingredients: whole wheat flour, salt.
Contains wheat (gluten).
