Here is a Couscous without the wheat or gluten for all to try. Couscous is not cereal as most people think it’s the starch of wheat made into ball through a manual process and this is a Moroccan speciality. With ARGAN oil it’s simply amazing, a unique and different oil. Morrocco oil from the argan tree which grows in arid condition with little water which they have used for centuries for health and beauty.
