Hot Breakfast Couscous Recipe


When I went on a 6 day kayaking trip, our guides whipped this up one morning over the campfire. It was delicious and I started making it at home.


  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups dry couscous
  • ⅓ cup chopped dried apricots
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • ½ cup slivered almonds


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, honey and cinnamon. As soon as it comes to a boil, stir in the couscous. Turn off the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the apricots, raisins and almonds.
