Easy, healthy couscous

This recipe is a great way to substitute rice with if you are trying to reduce your starch intake. This Mediterranean style recipe is light but delicious.


1 1/2 cups instant couscous
2 cups chicken stock
4 oz dried apricots, finely diced
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
1/4 c pitted kalamata olives, chopped
3 scallions, thinly sliced


Place couscous in a large mixing bowl. In a saucepan, combine chicken stock, apricots, salt and pepper and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour the boiling liquid over the couscous and toss to moisten every grain. Sprinkle with olives and scallions and cover tightly with plastic saran wrap. Let stand for 10 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.
