Mango-Blueberry Breakfast Couscous

The two little guys would eat oatmeal for breakfast every day if I made it.  I like oatmeal and all, but not quite that much.  One of my favorite alternatives is this mango-blueberry couscous recipe I clipped out of the paper years ago (yeah, the paper — I just totally dated myself — does anyone read the newspaper anymore?)  You can make the mix ahead or just throw everything in the pot all at the same time.  Start to finish it’s about 10 minutes — less if you mix the dry ingredients up ahead of time. 

ImageBlueberry-Mango Breakfast Couscous

1 cup whole wheat couscous

2 tablespoons brown sugar

3/4 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 cup slivered almonds (or whatever nuts you like, walnuts are super good as well)

1/4 cup dried blueberries

1/4 cup chopped dried mango

1 cup water

1/2 cup milk

In a medium bowl (or pot if you’re making it right away), combine dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly.  Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Combine the dry mix with water and milk.  Heat, stirring occasionally until it comes to boil.  Cover and remove from heat.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Fluff it up with a fork and serve.  Makes about 4 servings or 1 if Thomas is really hungry (you think I’m kidding). 

I used to just eat it as is, but as of late, I’ve been pouring a little milk on top.  It’s good both ways.  Here are before and after pictures to prove it.

  1. I have 5 boxes of oatmeal. You may have them or I will give them to the church for their Christmas boxes. Greg can check my light in the master for pull switches instead ofremote control. I also have The Constitution papers you might like to have. We had a lesson on it yesterday in day time Relief Society.Love Mom
