Blueberry Couscous

This was a quick side dish that I threw together that ended up working pretty well. I boiled water, added an equal amount of couscous, a pinch of salt, and a small handful of dried blueberries. I turned the heat off and covered it and let it all plump up. It was a super easy side dish, and it was pretty tasty. I think it would be good with some slivered almonds or something else in it, too, to add some texture.

    The blueberries added to the cous-cous with maybe a few slivered almonds would make this side dish a good dessert too (just need a little cream)..Seriously, the blueberries add a really nice touch to the grains. Very nice.

    You are too clever for words. Now I’m thinking dried cranberries with it as well and perhaps a bit of onion. You are genius!
