Couscous and Mograbiah With Oven-Dried Tomatoes From 'Ottolenghi'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's cafe, Ottolenghi, serves a multitude of grain-based salads. Many are rice, barley, or couscous-based. This version in their recently re-released cookbook, however, stood out for its inclusion of mograbiah, a Middle Eastern semolina pasta much like Israeli couscous or Sardinian fregola. More

Braised Chickpeas and Vegetables with Couscous, Harissa Yogurt, and Soft Eggs from 'Flour, Too'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 4 comments

Couscous is a wonderful pantry staple. It's the fastest pasta (or any starchy grain) I know how to cook, and its fluffy texture and mild flavor pair well with just about anything you throw at it. In Joanne Chang's new cookbook Flour, Too, she steams the pasta with a rainbow of summer vegetables and a couple of cups of slowly braised chickpeas. Not content with this everyday flavor profile, Chang flavors the dish with North African flair. More

Couscous with Sweet Potato Puree and Kale Chips

Seems like everyone these days loves kale chips. As for me, I'm on board as long as they are freshly prepared, not straight from a bag. But while undoubtedly good, why limit their potential to just snack time? More

Salmon with Cherry Sauce and Israeli Couscous

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

What put me in the cherry mood? Perhaps it was finding a jar of cherry jam in the fridge and realizing that it had never been opened. Or, it could have been the bag of dried cherries in the pantry that, too, was still sealed up tight. More

Eggplant and Tomato Sauce with Israeli Couscous

Serious Eats Yasmin Fahr 3 comments

Turmeric and some other spices used in this recipe are notably Moroccan, and, while in Morocco it's typical to serve the couscous alongside the stew or sauce, I chose to stir it all together to keep in line with this quick and easy dinners column—and it turned out great. The couscous had a chance to absorb the extra sauce and flavor. More

Nutty and chewy, the Israeli couscous gets a little kick from the jalapeño. The whole dish is super simple to prepare and quite addictive. The key is to not overcook the scallops. More

Kyle Bailey's Couscous from Scratch

Serious Eats Brian Oh 3 comments

Because the process of making couscous is relatively labor intensive, you're not likely to see it done that often. But Bailey goes through the process of steaming the semolina, which requires some patience, but the results are pretty rewarding. It turns out light and airy and tastes subtly of cinnamon. Watch the process, and maybe even try it at home! More

Michael Lomonaco's Sicilian Shrimp and Couscous

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

Too often when I cook a dinner that calls for shrimp, I simply peel off the shells and then toss them away. I don't even think twice about it most times. So I was intrigued by this recipe from Michael Lomonaco's Nightly Specials, because it takes those shells and puts them to a good use, all for a recipe that still only takes 30 minutes make. More
