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

Can you tell me where I can get the coucous brand you used? I’m a fan of couscous, but I’ve never tried it with mango juice or cranberries before. I usually add apricots, peppers, cilantro or mint to my couscous. Will definitely give this recipe a try!
Hi HM, I had sent an email to Jorge on your question of where to buy the couscous he used but he had not reply me yet. Will update you if I hear from him. Suanne
