Introduction

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! Israeli Couscous is a larger form of the couscous you may be familiar with. I find it in our local "Bulk Barn".
