I think you should treat cous cous as you would rice or mince.

If you cooled and refrigerated it quite soon after cooking then it would be safe to reheat.

I love to add roasted veggies to cold couscous. It is such a nice food that you can mix with so many things....tomorrow we are having leftover roast chicken and veggies with leftover couscous. Such an easy and delicious meal. Yum!

Default half-ton left over couscous

I'm now better with rice and pasta, but with couscous I make at least 4 times too much... (it just looks so little, dry in the bowl! )

I ate quite a lot of the left-overs yesterday for lunch and OH later announced he doesn't like it and only ate it because we had someone over for dinner! (which means I can con him into eating it if well disguised and yes, I'm talking about my OH, not a child!)

So, I just looked up some recipes for a cake or biscuits using couscous but not much luck - there were some but they called for dry couscous and you cook it with honey, orange juice/lemon juice. I guess it gets more flavour in.

I was also wondering if couscous is like rice - shouldn't really eat it so long after cooking.
It's been sitting in the fridge since Sunday evening (with a bit of olive oil and raisins stirred in)

Any ideas welcome!

Recent convert to cous cous after holiday in Crete and it is a nice change from pasta & rice as it is something light that can be eaten both hot or cold.

Sorry, I can't answer your question but it's delicious cold with all salady bits chopped into it and some meat or tuna or even cheese cubes if you've got it. Ideal for a packed lunch as a change from sarnies.
