Tyler Florence's Couscous with Apricots
Why I Love This Recipe
This is delicious as a side, or sometimes I'll take it to work as lunch.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 c. couscous
2 cups hot chicken stock or broth
10 dried apricots, chopped
2 scallions, sliced thin (green only)
1 orange, juiced
2 tbs. olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tbs. fresh parsley (optional garnish)
In a medium bowl, stir together couscous and the hot chicken stock. Cover and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. Add the apricots, scallions and orange juice. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with parsley if desired.
