Toasted Israeli Couscous with Olives and Golden Raisins

Toasted Israeli couscous, which is sometimes referred to as “pearly couscous”, has a slightly nuttier flavor and chewier texture than either couscous or pasta, thanks to its shape. It works equally well served warm or in at room temperature.


Recipe Details

  1. Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until slightly softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the couscous and cook until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and raisins and cook, stirring often, until raisins soften slightly, 2 minutes. Add 1 1/3 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the olives, parsley, salt and pepper.
