Apricot Couscous

Apricot Couscous

8 - 10 dried apricots, cut into small pieces
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cardamon
1 cup couscous, whole wheat if possible**

Place all ingredients except couscous into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Stir in couscous and cover. Allow to stand until liquid is absorbed (about five minutes). Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.

*Although couscous looks like a grain, it is actually a fine pasta. Whole wheat couscous is sometimes difficult to find, but it's well worth the effort in flavor and nutrition.

**For gluten-free option, substitute cooked millet or brown rice.
