Couscous, a light and fluffy rice-like dish made from semolina flour, is an incredibly popular food. In fact, it is served all over the world, from Morocco to Tuscany to Brazil to France, as a base for stews, meats and sauces. Here, we’ve kept to the basics and paired it with diced tomatoes, simple herbs and feta. Couscous pairs beautifully with so many flavors–experiment with whatever you have in your pantry and fridge.
We chose to serve our couscous as a side dish at a potluck party. We brought it in our sturdy cast iron Party Crock. It was easy to set up the decorative serving base with a tea candle to keep the couscous warm while everyone was making their plates. A few bowls on the side allowed everyone to serve themselves.
We suggest serving this with Lemon Chicken breasts cut into bit sized pieces, perfect for single servings and a great flavor combination with the couscous.
