To round out a simple meal, cook up some couscous. Studded with chewy dried apricots, roasted asparagus, and tangy goat cheese, this side dish is full of contrasting tastes and textures.
Test Kitchen Tip
Look for Moroccan couscous here. It cooks quicker than pearl couscous.
Preheat oven to 425°.
Toss asparagus with oil and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Roast asparagus on a baking sheet until crisp-tender, 7–8 minutes.
Heat broth, wine, apricots, ½ tsp. salt, and zest in a saucepan over medium-high to boiling.
Stir in couscous; cover pan, remove from heat, and let sit 5 minutes. Stir in asparagus and cheese.
