  1. Wow, that’s amazing, thank you, that’s what I like about couscous, you can have a delicious meal without meat, I’ve recently learnt in a course on Udemy (Cook 3 Couscous recipes easily) that we can even prepare couscous galette with some fried eggs and roasted vegetables, a great recipe for vegetarians.
