I have really fallen in love with couscous over the past few years.  I made couscous “Southern” by adding peaches, orange juice, dried cranberries and mint!  

  • 2 ½ cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups (1 regular sized box) of couscous
  • 1 large peach peeled and diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup fresh peach puree or orange juice
  • freshly chopped mint

In a medium sized saucepan, bring water, butter, cinnamon and salt to a boil.  Stir in couscous then cover and remove from heat.  Let stand for 10 minutes, then stir in peach, cranberries and orange juice.  Add chopped mint right before serving.
