Middle Eastern Couscous Recipe

Rose & Pistachio Couscous

I absolutely love flamboyance with minimal effort during a busy time of the year. I think about food all the time. I am constantly thinking of ways to create something spectacular, visually appetizing that gets my guests and loved ones starting a conversation at a gathering. After all that’s what food is all about…. right?!

What is even more satisfying for me is the background sounds of ooohh, ahhhh and yummmm by the guests at the table. The passing of platters, the talking of flavours… the simple joys of life!

This recipe I am about to share with you has been a crowd winner at all my gatherings and parties.

Enjoy creating, sharing and indulging!

  • 2 tablespoon of Persian ghee ADD TO CART
