Recipe after the jump:
Curried Apple Couscous:
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp curry powder
1 medium apple, cored and chopped
3 green onions, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 cup whole wheat couscous
1 3/4 cup water
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted (I used sliced almonds)
small handful of mint, chopped
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add 3 tablespoons of the butter, curry powder, and a couple of generous pinches of salt, and cook for a minute or until the spices are fragrant. Stir in the chopped apples and cook for about 3 minutes, enough time for the apples to soften and absorb some of the curry. Scoop the apples from the pan and set aside in a separate bowl.
In the same pan, again over medium-high heat, add the remaining tablespoon of butter. Stir in the green onions, let them soften up a bit and then add the water and salt. Bring to a boil, stir in the couscous, cover and remove from heat. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes and then use a fork to fluff up the couscous. Stir in the apples, pine nuts, and chopped mint. Season with more salt and curry powder to taste.
