Ingredients

    Coucous 1 cup dry (whole grain)
    2 cups boiling water

Tips

Can be microwaved to reheat, about 20-40 seconds depending on your oven.


Directions

Pour 2 cups boiling water over couscous, let sit covered for 5 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Add almonds, currants and spices - add a dash of red pepper, salt and black pepper. Mix thoroughly. Add olive oil (I use a fruity olive oil) and mix again. Let stand for 2 hours or refrigerate to let the flavors blend.
