This recipe appears in the "Women Who Can Dish It Out -- Junior League of Springfield, Missouri" cookbook. I have not prepared this recipe yet, but I hope to this weekend. I love couscous and the combination of pineapple, mandarin oranges and soy sauce sounds great! I may even reverse the juice from orange to pineapple.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add enough orange juice to the mandarin orange juice to make 2 1/4 cups liquid. Bring the juices and cumin to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add couscous. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Pour into a large bowl and let cool.
  2. Combine oil, soy sauce and lime juice. Stir into couscous mixture. Stir in mandarin oranges, cilantro, basil, green onions, ginger and pineapple. Sprinkle with pine nuts.

Very nice recipe. I believe I'll half the recipe next time. A bit much for just 2 people, however I will enjoy the leftovers for lunch. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)

This made an appealing side dish and was attractive on the plate. The flavor meld well and the citrus flavors shine thru. Next time I will coarse chop the fruit to better blend textures. Served with baked fish and broccoli. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)
