- Ready In:
- Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees.
- Place couscous in oven-proof container.
- Heat chicken broth to boiling in microwave or on stovetop, then stir into couscous; allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.
- Gently fluff couscous with fork and stir in olive oil until all the grains are coated evenly. You can use a fork or your fingers.
- Place couscous in the pre-heated oven to "toast" for another 10-15 minutes.
- While the couscous is absorbing the chicken broth, melt butter in medium pan over medium-low heat. Brown shallots or onion.
- Just before you put the couscous in the oven to toast, add preserved lemon and peaches to shallots and butter, allowing the sugars to caramelize slightly.
- Depending on how juicy the peaches are, you may need to add small quantities of water to keep the juices from burning and to keep the sauce appropriately liquid.
- Stir honey into the sauce just before the couscous is done toasting.
- Turn the couscous out onto plates and ladle the sauce over it.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a web producer and copy editor at an online newspaper. Many of my favorite foods are down-home Southern comfort food like my grandmother and mother made, but I also live in an ethnically diverse area and have been able to learn a lot about different styles of cooking. I especially like Asian, Mediterranean and Indian food. I'm working on learning to cook Indian food and I'm discovering that, like most traditional cuisines, it involves a lot of long complicated processes and a lot of intuition and background knowledge on the part of the cook. Hope I can begin to grasp some of that knowledge eventually.
