A New Kind of Couscous
Lundberg Family Farms, the nation’s No. 1 producer of organic rice and rice products, has now introduced couscous made with organic brown rice. Gently crushed into tiny granules and then fire-roasted to impart a subtle nutty flavor, the product, which qualifies as a heart-healthy whole grain as recommended by the USDA, can serve as either a side dish or a base for a main course. Additionally, the four varieties -- Plain Original, Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil, Mediterranean Curry, and Savory Herb -- contain no trans fat, wheat, gluten, or artificial ingredients, according to the Richvale, Calif.-based company. A 6.8- to 10-ounce box has a suggested retail price of $2.49. For more information, visit www.lundberg.com.
