Gluten-free cous cous is not something I had ever heard of before Lundberg. I used to love cous cous in pre-celiac days. It’s great as a side to spicy dishes! I even got the chance to eat it in Morocco, but I thought my days of eating it were over until I found out that Lundberg makes a gluten-free cous cous. How exciting! I love it when I come across a gluten-free version of something I thought I would never eat again! How easily pleased I am.
The first thing I noticed about the Lundberg product was that it really looks like ‘normal’ cous cous. It’s made with brown rice so I guess I just assumed that it wouldn’t really taste like cous cous but it does! It’s great! They make it by crushing the rice into tiny granules and then fire roasting it to add the nutty flavor.
As well as looking like cous cous, it also cooks just as fast as any cous cous or rice would. In just 15 minutes it turns out very light and fluffy and yummy. I was impressed.
