Fruity couscous with honey-ginger yogurt
We use couscous in both savory and sweet dishes because it’s so versatile and quick to prepare. In this recipe the couscous absorbs the flavors of the orange juice, and the dried fruit plumps up and softens.
It makes a beautiful sweet breakfast served with a few spoonfuls of Greek yogurt flavored with honey and ground ginger.
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
Variation: Add nuts, like toasted flaked almonds or pistachios, to the fruit couscous after it has steamed.
