Cous Cous Seasoning ------------------------>

This seasoning may be called cous cous seasoning - but it is so much more than that - and has bagged itself our recommendation of the week!


This versatile seasoning is great for adding flavour to sauces, dressings, salads, rice dishes, grains, dips, cheese & much more - and is PERFECT for these mini spanakopita pies.


Packed with Mediterranean flavours, this compliments fresh greens & creamy yoghurt based dishes.


Combine into recipes, use as a garnish - whatever you want!
