No grain cooks faster than cous cous, but this grain comes from wheat. I recently found out about brown rice cous cous from Vitacost.com and I’m hooked! It’s gluten free because it’s made from roasted brown rice, and the flavor is nutty and satisfying. You can cook the brown rice then toss remaining ingredients in the pot to makes this a beautiful one-pot meal.
