Sometimes I can get a little difficult when it comes to having breakfast. Mainly, because I am picky about what to have in the mornings but mostly because I can’t decide on what to have. Yes, I can be such a brat when it comes to breakfast. I love my breakfast sweet. Like, jam on toasted English muffins, blueberry pancakes, Danish pastries, French toast and… you get the picture, right? Bottom line is I like it sweet. So, when I found out that you can have couscous for breakfast I was totally sold!
Making couscous can’t get any easier and especially when you pair that up with some fresh berries and then drizzle it with some maple syrup and if you’re feeling a little crazy, how about a splash of fresh cream? It’s kinda like having oatmeal only it’s not. It’s breakfast couscous for the sweet tooth.
1 ½ cup skim milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of vanilla beans
Pinch of salt (optional)
1 cup dry couscous (whole wheat)
1/4 cup raisins
your choice of fresh berries
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, honey, cinnamon, vanilla beans and salt. As soon as it comes to a boil, stir in the couscous. Turn off the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes then stir on raisins. Then finish it with your favorite toppings and serve it warm.
