Israeli Couscous With Sweet Potato
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
From Christine Cushing's "Fearless in the Kitchen" (I love Cdn. cookbooks!) For Potpie.CC's comment:"Israeli couscous is one of my all-time favourite starches. Different from N. African couscous, Israeli couscous looks like pearls and has a chewier texture. The best way to add flavour to these little white balls is with sumac, which gives a pleasant tanginess. I've got to admit, I really love tang!"
