I have to share this recipe my friend made for our golf tournament last week. Our club members brought so many delicious salads and desserts, and we had platters of Subway sandwiches too. Great fun and great food.
1 box plain couscous ... general rule: 1 cup couscous takes 1 cup water to swell.
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
Pepper, to taste
1 tsp. curry powder
3/4 cup orange juice
4-6 green onions, sliced diagonally
2-4 tbsp. Italian parsley, chopped
3/4 cup Craisins
Chopped dried apricots to taste
2-3 tbsp. olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
3/4 cup nuts (walnuts, pecans or almonds) toasted and chopped
In bowl, mix together couscous, salt, sugar, pepper, and curry powder. Bring required amount of water to a boil and pour over mixture. Add orange juice and stir once. Cover tightly and let stand a few minutes. Stir again and continue to let stand until liquid is completely absorbed, 5-10 minutes. Fluff up with fork and add remaining ingredients. Better served at room temperature.
