Breakfast Cous Cous


half cup couscous
1/4 c orange juice
a little boiling water
chopped red sweet apple
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp honey
6 chopped almonds


I mix the honey in the hot water first to ‘loosen up’ the honey. Prepare couscous in usual way, adding orange juice, water and honey, then stirring in cinnamon chopped apples and almonds. Try it, it’s really nice.
