DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over moderate heat.
  • Add the couscous and toast the grains, stirring or shaking the pan frequently, until the grains become brown and fragrant.
  • Transfer to a plate.
  • Add the almonds to the hot skillet and toast them in the same way, stirring frequently.
  • Transfer them to another plate.
  • Bring the stock to a boil with the celery, salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne.
  • Simmer about 3 minutes or until the celery is slightly softened.
  • Add the couscous and raisins to the saucepan and stir gently just to mix.
  • Cover the pan, remove from the heat, and allow to stand about 5 minutes or until the couscous is tender.
  • Add the almonds to the couscous and, with a fork, stir the mixture lightly to fluff up the grains.
