    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    Delicious, quick weeknight meal. "Tiny balls of Israeli couscous are the culinary pearls of the pasta world". The combination of sweet, savory and piquant flavors in this dish make a nice match. Adapted from a recipe I saw in the Food Network Cooking Magazine. The original recipe called for chopped dates. I substitued dried cranberries instead, since that is what I had on hand. I also added some dried corriander along with the cinnamon, just to give a hint more flavor. I also like to soak the dried cranberries in a bit of hot water to plump them up before cooking. Splash of wine vinegar at the end gives a nice touch!

      Made this for our lunches and it turned out great. I ended up roasting the cauliflower in the oven at 450° with olive oil, salt, & pepper (its so fantastic this way) and omitted the shallot. Loved the addition of cranberries here along with the spices of which I added extra for more flavor. I bought my israeli couscous in bulk and prepared it as follows with good results: I first sauteed the israeli couscous with a little butter in a large pot until golden brown. I then added 4 cups of water and brought to a boil. It then took about 10-12 minutes for the couscous to become tender. A very enjoyable lunch. Thanks for posting!
