Israeli Couscous is a larger form of the couscous you may be familiar with. I find it in our local "Bulk Barn". This is a lovely side dish in the summer. Feel free to add fresh parsley or mint instead of cilantro if you prefer. Delicious!

These smell great grilling on the Q! Serve with fragrant Brown Basmati rice.
