1/2 c Currants
1/4 ts Cardamom, ground

Spiced Couscous Preparation

Toast and chop cashews or pistachios. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add spices and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add stock and currants. Can be prepared 4 hours ahead. Bring to boil. Mix in couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. Transfer couscous to bowl, add nuts and toss well. Sylvia’s comments: this was good! I was hesitant to try it because I’d never heard of couscous and the spices sounded weird, but it was delicious with just a hint of sweetness. I don’t think that much butter was needed, though (and I’d already cut it down!), will try less next time. From _Bon Appetit_, October 1987.
