    I tried with using Chicken Stock and it was great! Definitely will add this one to my short list of sides. BTW Seamcraft, go to Wikipedia look at the origins - it's essentially also a wheat based product so does it really matter??

    Couscous of any kind is not Israeli; it is Moroccan and Palestinian. There is no such thing as Israeli Couscous. Thank you.
