This couscous goes with the Moroccan Chicken Soup but can make a nice side dish for chicken, fish, or lamb.


Bring water, honey, oil, lemon juice, zest, and salt to a boil in a saucepan.

Off heat, stir in couscous and apricots; cover and let stand until water is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork before serving.
