Maftoul or pearl couscous is a larger couscous than what I am used. Ziyad Brand offers a few different varieties of imported all natural Middle Eastern grains such as the Maftoul Baladi that I used in this dish.
They are easy to cook either by microwaving or boiling the couscous in the bag it comes in. I added Dave’s Gourmet Wild Mushroom pasta sauce over the top of the maftoul and then mixed in Trader Joe’s eggplant and Del Monte Organic Green Beans.
This dish was outstanding! The pasta sauce was the best tomato sauce I have had in my life. That’s not a joke. Dave knows what’s up because the sauce is undeniably sensational! I loved what I made for dinner. All of the ingredients mixed together harmoniously.
These canned green beans are organic, so no chemical preservatives are added.
