Pistachio and Apricot Couscous

Pistachio and Apricot Couscous

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1/3 cup salted, roasted pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped, dried apricots
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper

 

Combine the chicken broth and couscous in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes.  Fluff up the couscous with a fork, and stir in the celery, pistachios, apricots, lemon juice and butter.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Some sauteed onion in this would be great, too!
