I love couscous and it is a staple in our home. I finally got around to making Israeli couscous and it was a disaster. It came out gummy with an unappealing tapioca like texture. Did I cook it wrong, or is it supposed to be this way and I just don't like it. BTW, I followed the instructions on the box & simmered 2 C of couscous in 2.5 C of liquid for about 10 minutes.
