Pearl Couscous, also commonly known as Israeli couscous, is a petite, pearl-shaped pasta made from durum wheat semolina flour. About the size of a peppercorn when cooked, it has a light, nutty flavor and a chewy texture that can stand up to substantial sauces.

  • Convenient and versatile, it cooks in just 10 minutes and stays firm after cooking
  • Especially tasty in a pilaf-style preparation with sautéed onions and garlic, but also adds substance to soups, salads, casseroles and more
  • Chill and toss with colorful marinated vegetables for a quick, tasty side dish


Bring 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a medium saucepan.  Add 1 cup of couscous; return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain. Stir in a drizzle of olive oil (optional) and serve. Yields 3 cups cooked.
