Dear SOS: We had dinner at the Vertical Wine Bistro in Pasadena last week and loved the couscous. Could you provide the recipe?
Dear Barbara: Vertical Wine Bistro was happy to share its recipe for Israeli couscous. It features large, pearly couscous flavored with chopped fresh herbs and garlic and a touch of bright tang from lemon juice and vinegar. It’s rounded out with complex notes from the Moroccan spice blend ras el hanout. The dish is perfect made ahead of time to give the flavors time to marry before serving.
