Sharon's Hint

Switch up the dried fruits and nuts in this colorful couscous. Try cranberries, dates or walnuts!


Step 1. 

Combine water, honey, and dried fruit in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until honey is dissolved. 

Step 2. 

Once boiling, add spices, salt and couscous and stir until combined. Remove from heat and cover with tight fitting lid. Let sit until couscous has absorbed all liquid. 

Step 3. 

Toss in almonds and orange zest. Serve immediately or transfer to parchment lined baking sheet and let cool 10 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and store in refrigerator.
