2. Remove from heat and add couscous cover and let stand for about 7 minutes.
3. Fold in oranges, juice, and fresh herbs.

Try adding raisins or dates for a different flair. (I personally add currants)

Glad you liked it. It is certainly a good foundation for a lot of other foods. Pairs well with fish, chicken and pork, and some other seafoods in the right preps.
