Couscous is thought to have originated in North Africa, with cookbook references dating back to the 13th century. The Arabic word "kaskasa," which means "to pound little," is the source of the word "couscous." Traditional couscous is made with a lot of effort and is frequently steamed. However, the most common type of couscous seen in shops nowadays is quick-cook couscous. This kind is incredibly simple to prepare, requiring only that it be swirled into a boiling liquid (typically water or broth) and set away to rehydrate. Couscous can be served on its own, flavored or unflavored, warm or cold, or as a side dish. It is traditionally served with meats and vegetables in its native North Africa, along with a sauce. Due to its versatility to a variety of flavor profiles, it offers a distinct alternative to rice or pasta. It is a heart-healthy meal that provides a unique alternative to rice or other pasta because it is high in fiber and protein and low in fat. Known for its versatility and texture, couscous is a staple cuisine in nations such as Morocco, Tunisia, and Lebanon, as well as being popular around the world.
