Fruity couscous with honey-ginger yogurt
Apricot and raisin studded couscous
served with a dollop of honey-ginger yogurt.
1¼ cups orange juice
1 cup quick-cooking couscous
½ cup dried apricots — halved
¼ cup raisins
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons liquid honey
2 teaspoons ground ginger
HEAT the orange juice in a small
saucepan over a high heat and bring to a boil. PLACE the couscous,
apricots and raisins in a heat-proof bowl, pour over the boiling
orange juice, cover with a plate or clean dishcloth, and allow to
steam for 5 minutes. WHILE the couscous steams, mix together the
yogurt, honey and ginger in a small bowl. FLUFF up the couscous and
dried fruit with a fork. SERVE the fruit couscous with the
honey-ginger yogurt drizzled on top.
Variation: Add nuts, like toasted flaked almonds or
pistachios, to the fruit couscous after it has steamed.
