This is a sweet pasta dish and it is absolutely delicious. It is super easy to make and has a ton of flavor. This is a dish that I make on occasion as a treat. I would label this dish as a dessert.
2 c water
1/3 cup canned coconut milk
1/2 c coconut sugar
1/3 c dried cranberries, chopped
1/3 c dried apricots, chopped
2 1/2 c couscous
1/2 c slivered almonds, toasted and chopped
1/2 c walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/4 c coconut flakes
- In a medium saucepan combine the water, coconut milk, sugar, apricots, cherries and coconut flakes. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved. About 2 minutes.
- Stir in the couscous and remove from the heat. Cover with a lid and allow the mixture to sit for about 10 -12 minutes.
- Remove the lid and fluff the mixture with a fork and add in the nuts. Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet to cool completely. This allows the mixture to keep from clumping together.
- When cool, spoon the mixture into a serving bowl and serve.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
