Cous with Stuff

This is one of those “put it all in, cook until done” recipes:

20130820-175957.jpg

2c pearl/Israeli cous cous
1c lentils
1c pecans
.5c dried cranberries
1 cinnamon stick
5 cardamom pods
~1 tsp cumin seeds

Put in a pot and add water to cover.
Cook 20-30min until the lentils are tender and most of the water is absorbed.

Improvements:

  • Crush the cardamom pods and cumin seeds before putting them in.
  • Watch the pot closely to make sure the water doesn’t all boil off and the bottom burn. Add more water if it is dry and the lentils aren’t tender
