  1. Hmmm, I think that any north african readers of this article would be surprised to read about these adaptations, or that the title ‘Couscous’ is used for a blog post with these recipes. The beauty of the couscous grain is how it is eaten swelled in lots of liquid and delicious sauce. I agree with being inventive in cooking but would prefer a steaming couscous myself.
