It’s potluck week at I♥CC. This means we could chose from any of the past chefs or from our current chef Curtis Stone. I decided for the latter and prepared
Mint and Cumin Couscous
Although this couscous is best served as soon as it is made, the next day the dish is great for lunch at work.
Mint and Cumin Couscous
Yield: 2 servings
Mint and Cumin Couscous is also great for lunch at work
- 330 gram reduced-salt chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon sea salt or less depending on your stock or taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 165 gram (1 cup) couscous
- 30 grams toasted cashews, very coarsely chopped
- 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh mint, cut into thin ribbons
- 1/2 orange, zest finely grated
- 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
- black pepper, freshly ground
modified from Ulrike Westphal inspired by:
- In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken stock, salt and cumin, and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover the pan tightly and let it stand until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes.
- Using a fork, fluff the couscous and mix in the cashews, spring onions, mint, and orange zest. Toss with the oil and season to taste with pepper. Serve warm.

I am sure that I will like this couscous very much. It has all the ingredients that I love in it! And lovely presentation of serving the couscous in cute little jars!
This sounds delicious with all of those flavourful add-ins. the orange zest in particular is a nice touch.

That sounds amazing!
I really love the idea of adding cashews for crunch! Delicious.
We love couscous and it is so easy to make.
Mint and orange zest are such refreshing addition to the couscous.
I love the flavors and the pilaf feel of this couscous. It looks so cute in the jars too–a fun little treat for lunch! ;-)
This encourages me to get out the couscous and actually use it. So healthy and light for summer.
I love making risotto. It is so comforting and so adaptable for any added ingredients. Mint and cumin sound good.
