    the80srule's Note:

    There's this delicious couscous mix I get at the prepared foods section of my favorite gourmet shop, and it inspired to make my own mix with my own couscous. This would make a nice alternative to oatmeal for breakfast, and a nice dessert with Middle Eastern flair. Creamed honey is really the absolute best for this but if you don't have it, don't fret-- just use regular honey of your choice. A beautifully flavorful dish that looks very complicated and elegant but is not at all hard to prepare, would be wonderful for dinner parties or international night.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4


    1/2-cup ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and salt it a little. Add the tahini, cardamom and cinnamon blend it in, letting the flavors impart. Lower the heat and add the couscous, cover and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
    2. 2
      When the couscous is fully cooked, fluff it with a fork and drain any excess water.
    3. 3
      Put into a serving bowl and mix well with the chopped dates and almonds.
    4. 4
      Add the creamed honey and just stir and stir, like you're melting butter over rice. Sir like normal if using regular honey.
    5. 5
      Add extra cinnamon and cardamom to taste. Serve with hot mint tea and enjoy.

      Such a simple breakfast but really delightful! I used instant couscous and regular honey. I tasted the couscous mixture before I added the honey and it was fairly sweet already from the dates, so I used a bit less honey than called for. Easy breakfast treat that I really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by Cookgirl

      Perfect bowl of perfection for our breakfast yesterday morning. ~Tasty Dish~ approved! Used local clover honey (which is not creamed-sorry) and whole wheat couscous (yes, it's "instant", sorry!) Made for Let's Go to Saudi Arabia tag game. Come play!
