    Mikekey's Note:

    Pearl (Israeli) couscous is more like barley in texture, and takes a little longer to cook. Look for it in the ethnic section, or in the pasta section of larger supermarkets. Try to find the "instant" kind, that cooks it 10 minutes. If you can't find it, you may have to add more liquid and cook longer. This one has a touch of East Indian spices. Good with grilled salmon or pork tenderloin. There are as many variations of Garam Masala (spice mix) as there are cooks :). I like mine with a tad more cinnamon than some. There are several recipes here on 'Zaar, or you can buy it in specialty shops or larger supermarkets.

      I really enjoyed this delicious dish! I have had Israeli couscous in my pantry for a while now but didn't know what to do with it. This recipe solved my problem! I really enjoyed the blend of flavours in this dish and it was very easy to make, with little attention. My kind of dish! Made for ZWT8. Thanks again Mikekey! :)

      Couscous and summer are a perfect match. I made this pretty much as described but added about 1/4 c. dried cranberries (what was left in my package) and my husband loved it. He told me I could make it for company.
