    If you are making something that you are serving over couscous, then you could use rice or some other grain. If it's an ingredient in a dish, it's hard to say - not much would work, but it could depend on what you are making.`

    To go with what??

    Cous-cous is a grain-type starch like rice. It depends what you want to use it with. It is, of course, usually used with North African and Middle Eastern foods.

    You could substitute with basmati rice or any rice.

    These days I quite like quinoa -- an ancient grain, fairly easy to obtain, and cooked like rice. Not too much water in the pot, though!!

    Couscous is not a grain. It is a pasta which resembles grains. icon_smile.gif

    Right, it is a pasta, not a grain. But if you are serving something over couscous, rice or quinoa might very well serve instead.
