Sweet couscous with juice and dried fruit


Michelle Bridges


This is one for the sweet tooths out there; a warm, filling breakfast really sets you up for the day. This can be made in a snap and provides your daily requirement of fruit as well. Give it a try!

Serves 2


1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¹/³ cup couscous
60g dried figs, diced
¼ cup currants
40g pitted prunes, diced
pinch ground cinnamon
1/2 cup plain low-kilojoule yoghurt



Heat orange juice in a small saucepan until hot (do not boil). Pour hot juice over couscous in a medium bowl and stir well.

Stand, covered, for 2 minutes, then stir again. Repeat until fluffy. Stir through dried fruit.

Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and a dollop of yoghurt on the side.

You can store any leftover couscous and fruit in an airtight container in the fridge. Just warm it up in the microwave on medium before adding the cinnamon.
