AIMEE'S CINNAMON PEACH COUSCOUS
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.
