ABOUT

Pearl Couscous differs from traditional couscous in that it is much larger and is hearty enough to stand up to sauces. Our Pearl Couscous Blend is a delicate mix of plain and tomato- and spinach-infused semolina pasta pearls. This mild flavored, colorful blend combines well with other spices and flavors in soups, pilafs and salads.

  • Mild tomato and spinach flavors that complement and absorb other flavors well
  • Can be substituted for rice or pasta to provide unique texture and variety
  • Use in soups, curries or stir-fries
  • After cooking, can be chilled and incorporated as a salad ingredient
