Moroccan-Style Couscous

Moroccan-Style Couscous

To cut prep time, we used already-cut matchstick carrots. You can find them in the produce section of the supermarket. Regular couscous can be substituted for whole wheat couscous, if desired.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)


  • 1 none (14-ounce) can vegetable broth
  • 2 cups matchstick-cut carrots
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous


Combine first 9 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
