This is a great couscous using a range of fruits and nuts including apricot, dates and almonds. A perfect side dish for any meat.
2 cups (500ml) vegetable stock
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup diced dates
1/3 cup diced dried apricots
1/3 cup sultanas
2 cups dry couscous
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
10 min › Cook:
10 min › Ready in:
Pour the vegetable stock into a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add the butter, apricots, dates and saltanas; boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cinnamon and toasted almonds then serve. Toasting Almonds
To toast almonds spread them out on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes in 180 degrees oven or until they are fragrant.
This is a huge amount. I halved the ingredients and still had way too much for my family of 4. The broth of boiling fruit smells unpleasant but thankfully that doesn't stay for the finished product. I made mine without nuts and was still tasty.
