How do you cook it, what do you eat it with. This is used like a rice-a-roni kinda thing?

Cous cous is good, but I like quinoa better for taste and texture. It still takes 10-15 minutes to cook in boiling water, and requires extra prep when it comes not already rinsed, but it's good stuff.

Couscous is a micro pasta. Bring a liquid (water, juice) with about a tablespoon of oil to a boil, stir in couscous, cover, remove from heat. After five minutes, fluff with fork and serves 4.

Couscous makes an excellent side dish or bed to a main dish. Use apple juice and a handful of golden raisins, lay a grilled center cut pork chop with a balsamic and black currant glaze. Sauteed green beans and yellow bell peppers. Serve with a lightly chilled Pinot Grigio.

Your place or mine, big guy? :crazy:

I agree that couscous is an excellent candidate for bug out meals. Because as Evan indicates, all you do is boil water, add the couscous and remove from heat. In five minutes you have a delicious source of carbs that when mixed with some bullion, canned tuna, salmon or chicken, makes a reasonably filling meal with far less effort than cooking up rice or regular pasta. It's just about as easy as making ramen noodles, but far more tasty IMHO.

If you've never tried it, in the US at least the Near East brand can usually be found in grocery stores near the Rice-a-Roni/Lipton's pasta packet-type foods. They come prepackaged with flavor/herb packets. The garlic/olive oil flavor is my favorite.
