Airfried Couscous is a wonderful North-African dish. It can be served as a main dish, salad or side dish, hot or cold. The possibilities are indeed endless. What is also great is that it is gluten-free and vegan / vegetarian friendly. Thus, couscous is a very popular dish worldwide.

As an AirFryer cannot technically bring water to boil, I used coconut milk for its denser consistency. Additionally, I covered the couscous mixture with aluminum foil. This creates a steamy environment and helps it cook better. You need to ensure you stir a couple of times so the couscous cooks through. I also let it rest a couple of minutes after cooking, to let the steam do its job.

While the origins of couscous stem from North Africa, the combination of couscous and coconut is actually popular in Brazil. In the South American region it is a common breakfast dish, usually steamed and served with tapioca. Therefore, my Airfryer version with aluminum foil cover is a fusion variation of this original recipe.

Overall, I did not expect the Airfried Couscous to turn out so delicious. However, it did surprise me as the oriental flavors mixed with the subtle coconut makes this dish tasty and nutricious.
