How to make this delicious seasonal dish:
In a large bowl, combine couscous with cinnamon, cranberries, salt, oil
and lemon juice. Add boiling water, cover bowl and let everything steam
for 10-15 minutes. Toast pine nuts until golden brown; set aside until
ready for use. Separate the couscous with a fork and fold in the fresh
chopped herbs and toasted pine nuts.
Notes from the Chef:
Pine nuts are expensive so be careful when toasting them. It’s best
to toast in a medium hot dry skillet until golden brown and do not leave
them unattended. Toasted chopped pecans are a great alternative in this dish.
