I think Mondays have become my experimental breakfast day. There is a hangover of breakfasting goodwill from the weekend and a desire to stretch out that feeling for as long as possible. Usually by Thursday I'm back to vegemite toast but for now at least Mondays have a certain delicious promise.
This morning I made cous cous in the key of sweet, a first for me, and then ate it whilst watching a crazy cartoon Kristian and I have recently discovered, called Adventure Time. A bizarre but great start to the working week.
Cous cous with sultanas, apricots and yoghurt
1/2 cup couscous
3/4 cup boiled water
zest of half an orange and a squeeze of juice
1 Tbs chopped nuts
2 Tbs dried fruit like sultanas or currants
some sliced fruit - I used apricots but banana, berries or grated apple would all be great
dollop of yoghurt
drizzle of honey
Put the couscous in a medium bowl and add the raisins, orange zest and juice. Pour the boiled water over the top and cover for about 5 minutes. Once the cous cous has absorbed all the moisture, fluff the grains with a fork. Add the fruit, nuts, yogurt and honey then enjoy.
