DIRECTIONS

  • Cook carrots in pot of boiling water (cooking in the water preserves more nutrients than steaming) until just firm (about 5 minutes).
  • Prepare couscous by adding equal amount of boiling water to couscous in a bowl, and covering for 5-8 minutes.
  • Once cooked, fluff couscous and add olive oil.
  • Drain carrot water and butter carrots while still in the pot. Mix to cover carrots thoroughly with butter. (Fat helps to digest the nutrients in the carrots.).
  • Pile carrots, dates and wanuts on top of couscous.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
