I have been working on revising/changing a recipe originally from Cooking Light titled "Breakfast Couscous" in order to include it in the cookbook! I have made several modifications, including reducing the amount of sugar (and changing the kind of sugar to something less processed,) cutting the portion size (down to 1, obviously,) using whole wheat instead of regular couscous, and using the milk type thing of my choice instead of powdered nonfat dry milk. I'm having it this morning, and boy is it tasty! Ingredients:
whole wheat couscous
dried fruit (I used chopped apricots)
chopped nuts or seeds (I used sunflower seeds)
YUM YUM YUM. Less than 10 minutes to the table, and super-duper filling. A winner, in my opinion, at least!
However, I have a conundrum. What to title this recipe? I'm thinking something along the lines of "A.M. Pilaf," or "Couscous in the Morning," or, "Couscous in the A.M.," or "Morning Pilaf" or something. Anyone have any brilliant opinions or ideas? Do share.
Also, I wish to apologize to the many who offered to test my roasted red pepper and corn soup -- because my Dad is going to test it for me! Thank you all, though, for your enthusiasm and offers of help. My parents have been asking to help, but not with anything "too weird." :) I thought this one fit the bill, plus my Dad is an awesome soup chef. They make a gazillion different kinds of soup at boy scout camp all the time, so this one could be added to the repertoire, eventually!
