couscous2.jpgI recently ordered couscous at a restaurant and loved it.  I never really knew anything about this food before and was up for something new.  Couscous is  like a type of pasta, so it does not have a lot of flavor, but like oatmeal, it is good when it’s mixed with Cinnamon, dried fruit and other ingredients.  Like all pasta, I try and stick with the whole wheat even though the recipe may not call for it.

Tony’s Breakfast Couscous

(recipe from:  Cooking Light)

Yield:  3 servings (serving size:  2/3 cup)


1 1/4 cups water and 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk

OR 1 cup fat-free milk & 1/4 cup water

1/2 cup uncooked couscous (I use whole wheat)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used 1 tsp brown sugar so it wasn’t as sweet)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt


Bring water  to a boil in a small saucepan; stir in milk and remaining ingredients. Remove from heat. Cover; let stand 10 minutes. (Mixture will thicken as it cools.)

    I’ve never tried sweet couscous, but this sounds delicious! Definitely a good change for porridges and yoghurt (oh my! is my breakfast variety really that little?:O)
