Turkish Couscous

Couscous is a traditional staple of North Africa. It is also popular in parts of the Middle East. Jorge made a Turkish Couscous to complement the Pan Roasted Cilantro-Mint Marinated Chicken Thighs.


Couscous is a grain dish made by rolling and shaping moistened semolina wheat and coating them with finely ground wheat flour. This is a great substitute for rice. It cooks very quickly.


  • 5 cups quick couscous
  • 5 cups water or stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups cooked peas
  • 2 cups raisins or dried cranberries (soaked and drained)
  • 1 mango (optional)
  • salt and pepper
