Often couscous is served as a savory dish. Rarely, is it eaten for breakfast. This sweet dish was created a few years ago. It’s a lighter alternative to the heavy-weight oatmeal cereal. Store it in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator, and savor it one bowl per morning. Fight the usual 3 p.m. weekday sweet snack attack with this treat, too. Change the amount of nuts and dried fruit to accommodate a preference for flavors. Serve with Greek yogurt and drizzle honey to your sweet taste.

Sidenote: A friend on my facebook page suggested serving it with coconut milk. Sounds delicious to me! Thanks, Lauren!
