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.
