Apricot & Cranberry Couscous Cereal
Oatmeal doesn't completely have the hot cereal market cornered.
Prep: 5 min Total: 35 min Yield: Serves 4
2 cups apricot nectar
1/4 cup dried apricots, diced
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 cup quick-cooking couscous
optional: low-fat milk or cream
optional: brown sugar or cinnamon
Close the lid and press Steam/Cook to preheat the rice cooker for approximately 10 minutes.
Open the lid, using caution to avoid steam burns. Combine the nectar, dried apricots, cranberries, allspice and couscous together in the inner pot and close the lid. Cook for about 20 minutes, just until the ingredients come to a boil.
Let the cereal stand for 5 minutes, then serve in individual bowls. Add milk or cream, if desired. Top with brown sugar or cinnamon.
