The Cascà is another traditional dish of Carloforte which has its origins in the Tabarka cuisine. It is a variant of the famous couscous, a traditional North African dish.
The dish is based on a semolina grain preparation, steamed and seasoned with vegetables and chickpeas. Its preparation is simple if you use ready-to-cook semolina and a couscous steamer. While the semolina is being prepared, saute’ a variety of vegetables cut into small pieces: cauliflower, onions, carrots, eggplant, and zucchini. When the vegetables are tender, add boiled, drained chickpeas and season to taste. When the semolina is cooked, combine with the vegetables. Best served warm.
