As you probably know, couscous is very tasty and is a great way to freshen up the selection of traditional side dishes such as potatoes, rice or classic types of pasta. However, it is also great for making salads, sauces or soups. Feel free to also combine it with legumes or to make risotto instead of using the classic rice. That said, the fans of sweet dishes can use this pasta to make the popular couscous cake. But in case you are not much into baking, it also tastes great in combination with sweet syrup, fruit, cream, or nuts.
