Maftoul Giant Couscous, Organic, Zaytoun (200g)

(£2.08 per 100g)
Organic Vegan

Organic Maftoul is a special sort of couscous, nuttier and firmer in texture than most grains but still hearty and light. Its name means hand rolled and Zaytoun’s approach to this traditional Palestinian grain certainly pays homage to the name. Even to this day, the bulgur and whole wheat flour is rolled and dried by hand out under the baking heat of the Middle Eastern sun. Create a stunning side with some simple spices and seasoning or mix your Maftoul up with sautéed veggies for a filling main, full of earthy flavour.

Zaytoun show that hard work and delicious food can change lives. This social enterprise was founded in 2004 to support resilient Palestinian famers, putting up payment before even the first bottles of olive oil left the groves. Hundreds of happy customers and many years later, Zaytoun’s range has grown, becoming the first to bring a Fairtrade olive oil to UK shores in the process. Their dedication to the artisanal craft of Palestinian food celebrates its makers, and Zaytoun even lead yearly trips to meet these skilled growers and makers. There’s no better proof that food brings people together than that.
