Couscous as alternative for rice lovers
|Couscous with grilled salmon|
Ever since I found out about couscous, I have so loved it and have been using it as a substitute for rice. Couscous is so filling, yet so low in calorie, when compared to rice or quinoa. A cup of cooked couscous contains 176 calories as against 206 and 222 calories for the same measure of rice and quinola respectively.
Am sure a number of people will be wandering what type of food this is? Well, it is actually small grained pasta made from millet or semolina. It is very great for weight watchers and can be savoured in a great number of ways:
- Mixed into salads
- With stew
- With soup
- With veggies
- With chicken, meat, mushrooms, shrimps, fish
I love eating mine incorporated into salads with a piece of grilled salmon; just so yummy!!
