Cashew Couscous - Bless You

Cashew Couscous (Bless You!)

[side dish]
Couscous is actually tiny pieces of pasta almost as small as grains of sand. Each forkful of this recipe is deliciously different!
1½-quart (1.5 L) glass or ceramic baking dish, baking spatula or wooden spoon, measuring cups, measuring spoons, kitchen scissors, microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl, foil (or lid of baking dish), fork
1 cup (250 mL) couscous
1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil
1 stalk green onion
⅓ cup (80 mL) roasted cashew pieces
2 Tbsp (30 mL) sultana raisins
½ tsp (2 mL) dried parsley
½ tsp (2 mL) finely chopped garlic (from jar)
¼ tsp (1 mL) ground cumin
pinch of salt
2 cups (500 mL) water
1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In the baking dish and using a baking spatula or wooden spoon, mix the couscous and olive oil until the couscous is well coated.

  4. Stir in the cashew pieces, raisins, parsley, garlic, cumin, and salt.
