2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch ground ginger

3 carrots, thinly sliced

1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped

Kosher salt

1 1/2 cups couscous

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for serving


  1. Heat the butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Add the cinnamon and ginger and cook until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds. Add 3 cups of water. Stir in the carrots, apricots and 1 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. 
  2. Stir in the couscous. Remove from the heat, cover and set aside until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 10 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in the cilantro. 
  3. Sprinkle with more cilantro before serving.
