Zaytoun Organic Maftoul (cous cous) (6x250g) CASE
Maftoul is a traditional Palestinian grain, similar to cous-cous, and made from bulgar and whole wheat flour. Its distinctly nutty flavour makes it a brilliant alternative to more ordinary grains. The women follow in the same traditions as their grandmothers, working together to crack, hand-roll, and dry the wheat under the bright Palestinian sun. Zaytoun's organic maftoul is amazingly easy to prepare, too. Simply rinse the maftoul in cold water, and then steam for 20 minutes or add 400ml of stock or water, bring to the boil and let simmer for 12-15 minutes.

From the home of the olive tree, Zaytoun found its feet in 2004 as a community interest company, providing support to reams of olive growers in Palestine. Zaytoun sprung from a love of good food – and was initially funded by hundreds of olive oil enthusiasts who gave advance payments for an ethical, wholesome, and artisanal oil that’d offer them that feel-good feeling when splashing it on a salad, or making food for their loved ones.
Zaytoun has expanded massively since then, and now prides itself on building real, living connections between countless Palestinian olive growers and the foodies who know good quality when they taste it.
