When I have couscous, it's usually as a side dish because it's a nice alternative to rice. The grain is super easy to make and goes perfectly with shellfish, chicken and even steak. If you're looking for something a little more filling, however, simply adding a variety of vegetables and some cheese. Suddenly the grain turns into an awesome main course. But the one thing I'd never considered doing with couscous is mixing it with eggs and salt and frying it up into little patties. But then Fine Cooking suggested it and a new dinner was born. The couscous patties are delicious, a nice alternative to falafel and the perfect protein to add to a salad (or pita) when you're not in the mood for chicken, steak or shrimp.
