This is an older recipe, but it's good eating!
8 ounces dry couscous
1½ cups water
1 tsp. fresh chopped dill
1 tsp. fresh chopped mint
½ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. white pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 can mandarin oranges
1. Place water, salt, sugar, pepper and olive oil in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
2. Remove from heat and add couscous cover and let stand for about 7 minutes.
3. Fold in oranges, juice, and fresh herbs.
4. Let stand for 2-3 minutes.
Try adding raisins or dates for a different flair. (I personally add currants)
This dish is delightful with seafood or chicken.
