Do you yearn to travel but your budget won’t allow it? There’s nothing holding you back from bringing exotic tastes and experiences straight to your dinner table. This classic Moroccan dish will have you dreaming of the Casbah without leaving the comforts of your home.
A traditional Moroccan couscous is prepared with simmering lamb, plenty of spices like cinnamon and saffron, and a generous helping of squash and peppers. Making the couscous in the kitchen with the help of family or for guests is a symbol of love, generosity and hospitality. Fluffing and breaking the couscous grains to add a puffy texture is the signature communal activity before enjoying this steamed dish. Enjoying family sized dishes is in the spirit of all Moroccan cuisine. This couscous is sure to be a hit around your household.
Our recipe calls for plenty of delicious fresh vegetables and spices. We substitute the traditional roasted lamb with Randall Great Northern Beans to add protein to this main dish. No good couscous dish would be complete without a complementary acidic sauce, so we’ve included our take on a Tunisian favorite. The sauce is a perfect way to add a little kick to your couscous dish and adds another hint of color to the yellow couscous.
