Sweet couscous

Couscous is extremely versatile and can be used for both savoury dishes and for sweet ones, such as this quickly made, delicious hot cereal. The couscous is mixed with dried fruit and soaked briefly in hot milk, then topped with fresh fruit, to create something a little different to start the day.

Sweet couscous

Ingredients

  • 1¼ cups (230 g) couscous
  • ⅔ cup (85 g) raisins
  • ⅓ cup (90 g) chopped prunes
  • finely grated zest of 1 small orange
  • 3 cups (750 ml) low–fat milk
  • 2 nectarines, sliced
  • ½ cup (125 g) fromage frais or Greek–style yogurt

Preparation

  1. Put the couscous in a bowl with the raisins, prunes and orange zest, and stir to mix thoroughly.
  2. Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring just to the boil.
  3. Pour the hot milk over the couscous mixture, stirring well, then cover with foil or a folded clean tea towel.
  4. Leave to soak for about 10 minutes, or until the couscous is plumped up and all the milk has been absorbed.
  5. Spoon the couscous into bowls and top with sliced nectarines and fromage frais.
  6. Serve immediately.
