  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the cinnamon and the lemon zest strips and cook, stirring, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds. Add the broth, currants, carrots and 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. 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 and mint.
