Comfort food lovers, rejoice. Ground Beef with Couscous is a simple, hearty recipe that captures the flavors of Morocco.
Couscous is a traditional North African pasta made of semolina: coarse purified durum wheat grains. It’s worth noting that gastronomes often have heated debates over whether couscous is a grain or a pasta. The truth is it’s a little bit of both, since it’s a pasta made from a grain.
Controversy aside, couscous is an excellent side dish for baby meals since it's nutritious and goes well with everything -- in addition to beef, fish, chicken and vegetables also make for perfect combinations. It’s full of manganese, tryptophan and magnesium.
Ground beef really is the perfect pairing for this delicious alternative to rice or pasta.
