Israeli couscous, also known as pearl couscous, is a versatile pasta made from toasted semolina flour. Sometimes referred to as Jerusalem couscous or ptitim, this grain is rounder and slightly larger than regular couscous. It has a wonderful chewy texture when cooked, which lends itself well to many dishes. Mix it with fresh vegetables and feta cheese for an Israeli couscous salad.
To cook: boil 1-1/4 cups of water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of butter in a saucepan. Stir in 1 cup of couscous. Cover and remove from heat, let stand for 5 minutes.
