Couscous with Dates, Figs, and Almonds


This meal was brought to you by Glenn Lester. This is a fabulous example of what you can make out of random things in your pantry and fridge. Wouldn’t you rather eat this than pasta with red sauce or Kraft mac and cheese?

We sauteed figs, dates, and a little onion in olive oil and sprinkled some brown sugar on top. We cooked the couscous (Moroccan this time) according to the package directions, but added a cinnamon stick to the boiling water. Then we mixed it all together and topped it with toasted almonds.
