Couscous originates from North Africa and is made of small, steamed granules of rolled semolina. It’s commonly served with vegetables – such as carrots, potatoes, and turnips – with a mild or spicy stew spooned on top. You’ll also find it paired with meat including chicken, lamb or mutton. Couscous is considered a staple food in countries such as Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Libya. It was later integrated into European cuisine via the French colonial empire in the twentieth century.
