Pearl Couscous with Fresh Mint

I love pearl couscous!  The consistency reminds me of tapioca beads.  I can't wait to try different recipes using this type of couscous. 

Follow the directions on the box or packet of couscous adding all of the below ingredients.  I squeezed the remaining  juice from the orange before serving.

1 bag plain pearl couscous

1/2 cup dried raisins or currents

 2 cups water

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 cup pistachios chopped

2 fresh sprigs of mint

orange zest

juice from a freshly squeezed navel orange

1 shallot chopped


Serves 4
