I’ve eaten couscous on many occasions and have even tried some that are pre-seasoned. I think couscous is an excellent alternative to rice and goes well with just about anything. Having the opportunity to review Looly’s couscous was a pleasure and their couscous was amazing. I received both the 8 oz of the Salad Couscous (Thyme/Turmeric) and 8 oz of the Breakfast Couscous (Cinnamon) to try.
Looly’s Fine Pearls of Couscous contain fewer calories than rice, pasta, quinoa and white bread. They’re also a good source of fibers, protein, selenium and potassium.
I used the Thyme/Turmeric couscous as a side dish for my crunchy pork chops. I thought the flavor was light and delicate. I would have preferred a bit more turmeric flavor, but it was still quite tasty. Couscous goes a long way to be careful not to make too much.
The fine folks at Looly’s are offering to give away 8 oz of the Salad Couscous (Thyme/Turmeric) and 8 oz of the Breakfast Couscous (Cinnamon) to one of my lucky readers.
