Sweet Couscous

This seems like it could be a fun recipe to play with. Lots of different options for the fresh and dried fruit. I might try it without the orange peel next time; I found it to be a little bitter and overwhelming. It was very tasty otherwise though. Nice with a little honey and cinnamon.

Sweet Couscous
Slightly adapted from allrecipes
225g couscous
125g dried fruit (I used raisins and cranberries)
zest of 1 orange, grated
750mL milk
peach yogurt
fresh fruit (optional)

1. Combine couscous, dried fruit, and orange zest.
2. Heat milk until it just boils. Immediately remove from heat and pour over couscous.
3. Stir couscous and let stand 10 minutes.
4. Fluff with fork and serve with yogurt, honey, and fresh fruit.

I'd like to try this with figs and... some other complementary fruit at some point.
