Lebanese couscous with mussels parsley pesto

Lebanese couscous with mussels parsley pesto

Canon 600D, ISO 3200, 1/320 sec, f/3.5, 24-70mm

DISCLAIMER: This is not a Lebanese recipe. I just happen to be out of noodles and all I have in my cupboard (that I can use as a substitute) is a bag of couscous made in Lebanon. After googling it, I learned that these pearly grains are called Maftoul. I cooked them like I would cook noodles but it took longer to get the desired al dente texture.

I had a late start cooking today and I don’t have time left to write down the recipe. I will post it soon, promise! In the meantime, you can take a look at the dark photos and imagine how delicious it is. I finished two small plates. =)

Update: The recipe is available at the bottom of the page!
