- 1 dash cinnamon

- Cover and microwave on high until liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Let stand, covered, for 1 minute more.
Fast, easy and healthy. Increased the couscous to 3/4 cup (don't like mine too wet) and used two tablespoons honey (reached for the frozen apple juice and found out we were out). Love the way the orange juice, honey, and cinnamon came together. Was careful to add the cinnamon a little at time so as not to over power the orange. Was thoroughly enjoyed by both of us.
Yummy. I used whole wheat couscous and no honey or apple juice concentrate to trim the sugar back. A bit of Splenda worked fine. The orange flavor is lovely and just the right amount. I micro'ed mu single serving for 1 1/2 mins and let it stand for the extra min and it was perfectly well done but still moist. Thanks Lorrie for another great brekkie solution to my usual oatmeal :D.
