  • 1 1/2 cup couscous
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 medium red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 medium red onion diced
  • 1/3 cup pistachios chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • Dressing
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Place 2 cups of water in pot along with figs, apricots and raisins and heat to a boil. While water is coming to a boil, place couscous in a heat-safe bowl with turmeric, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix couscous until it is well coated with olive oil. After water comes to a boil, use a slotted spoon to remove dried fruits and set aside. Add water to the couscous and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow to steam for 15 minutes.

While couscous is steaming, prepare dressing by combining lemon juice, orange juice, olive oil, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, honey, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.

Fluff cooked couscous with a fork to separate grains. Add dried fruits, pepper, onion, pistachios and cilantro. Pour in dressing. Gently mix together with a large serving spoon until all ingredients and dressing are well combined.
