Ingredients

  • cup milk 
  • cup coconut milk unsweetened canned
  •  cardamom pods green
  • 0.3 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • tablespoon sugar 
  • 0.5 cup pomegranate seeds 

Equipment

  • sauce pan
  • knife

Directions

  1. Smash the cardamom pods open with the flat side of your knife (thats right, like a garlic clove).
  2. Combine the milk, coconut milk, and cardamom in a saucepan and place over low heat. Bring to just below a boil, stirring every once in awhile. It will be a little foamy.
  3. Strain the cardamom pods out since the shells are not so good to eat.
  4. Add the couscous and simmer on low for 10-12 minutes, until all the liquid absorbs. The couscous should be tender but still with some chew to it.
  5. Stir in the cinnamon, sugar, and pomegranate seeds. I used the seeds from half a pomegranate. If you dont have pomegranate seeds, or dont like them, try substituting raisins or dried cranberries.
