This simple but exceptionally tasty side dish can be served warm, chilled, or at room temperature. I especially like it with grilled chicken.
1 cup vegetable stock (prepare using stock concentrate, cubes, or powder)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lime zest
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 cup couscous
¼ cup chopped fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
¼ cup chopped dried apricots
In a measuring cup, stir the stock powder and zests into the boiling water.
Place the couscous in a small bowl. Stir in the liquid; cover tightly and allow to stand 5 to 8 minutes.
Stir in the basil and apricots. Serve warm or at room temperature.
