      Perfect consistency, not too dry, not too wet - just enough to taste the texture of the uncooked couscous. And just sweet enough to be deemed dessert! Awesome recipe. It's going in the cookbook arsenal.

      Excellent dish! I used rice couscous and rice milk and dried papaya instead of the apricot. The pistachios and pine nuts really made this special. Thanks for posting!

      Despite the fact that I messed up and picked up the wrong dish and dumped the nuts and apricots into the cooking pot. I was able to draw back and save a very few nuts to scatter. Even if it's not company pretty it didn't damage the taste in any way and this is delicious. I skipped the butter and used Splenda for the sugar. The nuts were pistachio's and pine nuts. This would also be a marvelous breakfast least for me. Made for Photo Tag.
