Couscous is a main dish in the North African cuisines of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania, and Libya. This dish became very popular in the Middle East also in Europe and the United States. Couscous is light and fluffy when it is cooked, it is a very easy and simple dish to cook. I like to cook couscous with mixed vegetables and use it as a side dish, I usually add Tilapia and Macaroni salad with the Couscous to have a full meal. It is very light, healthy, and very filling. You can cook this recipe in less than 30 minutes.
