    Elise and family's Note:

    This is surprisingly filling, and very quick and easy to prepare. I enjoy it when I don't have much time, and need to make something for just one person to eat. It's very healthy too!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook carrots in pot of boiling water (cooking in the water preserves more nutrients than steaming) until just firm (about 5 minutes).
    2. 2
      Prepare couscous by adding equal amount of boiling water to couscous in a bowl, and covering for 5-8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Once cooked, fluff couscous and add olive oil.
    4. 4
      Drain carrot water and butter carrots while still in the pot. Mix to cover carrots thoroughly with butter. (Fat helps to digest the nutrients in the carrots.).
    5. 5
      Pile carrots, dates and wanuts on top of couscous.
    6. 6
      Add salt and pepper to taste.

      Made this recipe for four while entertaining a vegan. Made it with 2 cups of couscous, 1 cup of walnuts, 1.5 cup of raisins instead of dates, 2 cups of carrots and used apple juice to make the couscous. Big hit even with the non-vegans
