Mint Couscous with Tart Cherries

Andrew Schloss | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

In Morocco, mint and couscous are bon amis. And in my house, mint and cherries, especially tart cherries (also called pie cherries), are a favorite combination. So it was inevitable all three would meet, and I am pleased to report the triumvirate is triumphant.

  1. Boil water in a 2-quart saucepan. Remove pot from heat and add oil, cherries, couscous, mint, salt, and pepper. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and adjust seasoning.
