And now let’s see some of our best couscous recipes:
Couscous with pesto and taleggio sauce
If you’re looking for easy dinner recipes, this one is a must. In this recipe, we bring the perfect blend of tastes and smells with the soft and creamy Taleggio, the aromatic Italian pesto and the mild flavor of couscous. Couscous with pesto and Taleggio sauce is fun and easy to prepare.
We like the thickness and creaminess that Taleggio cheese adds to any dish and here it melts smoothly into the couscous. You can even thicken it more with potato starch to reach the consistency of your liking.
Couscous with Mushrooms
For a tasty lunch or a lovely dinner, pasta with sour cream and mushrooms can be a true delight. But if you are tired of this traditional go-to recipe, this traditional recipe with a twist adds flavor and lightness.
In a non-stick pan pour extra virgin olive oil, add one garlic clove inside and let the oil heat and absorb the aroma of the fresh garlic. Remember, the longer you cook the garlic, the less it will taste and smell and the more creamy and subtle its flavor becomes. So make sure to cook it just enough.
These easy recipes can be prepared with your choice of Martino’s range of couscous products made from high-quality durum wheat. If you’re watching your weight or have a gluten allergy, we recommend the Al Naturale range with corn, chickpea or rice couscous, which are highly digestible and low-fat. The perfect choice if you are looking for a light change in your everyday life while retaining the great taste and texture of our authentic Italian couscous.
