Couscous is another grain that I love to cook with. It is similar to rice and pasta but couscous stands out because it contains many more vitamins and nutrients. It has about the same ratio of protein as pasta does, but a little more than rice does. Couscous has a 1% fat-calorie ratio, whereas white rice has a 3% ratio and pasta 5% ratio.
As you may have seen, there are various types of couscous. Three of the most common are:
- Morrocan couscous: tiny grains of semolina
- Israeli couscous: semolina pellets that are a little bigger than Morrocan
- Lebanese couscous: this is the largest kind, about the size of small peas
