Add the broth and orange zest and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.

Step 3

Add the parsley, dried cranberries, and almonds. Stir to combine and heat the cranberries and almonds. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.

What a great side dish. Had to use dried parsley b/c my fresh parsley froze!

Wonderful flavours, quick easy and low GI to boot thank you Mikekey for a great side. I did have one little oops moment in that the 2 legged gremlins had eaten all the oranges so no zest so replaced a 1/4 cup of the broth with orange juice and it gave the couscous that hint of orange flavour. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
