Couscous: made for cyclotourists

Couscous is a close relative to pasta and perfect for bike touring, hiking or canoe-camping. Some advantages over pasta or rice are...
  • Fast and easy: add an equal part of boiling water, cover, let it sit for 5 minutes and voilĂ !
  • Packs smaller than many types of pasta
  • No draining so no risk of spilling and no water is lost.
  • Blends perfectly with other foods
  • Absorbs liquids
Add a bit olive oil, diced veggies (or fruits for breakfast) and a bit of seasonning for a complete meal. It fits with nearly anything. My favorite is with shrimps.
