Last night I went to an AIGA potluck at the wonderful Hannah's house, and was asked to bring something to contribute to the yum-yum extravaganza.
Just a little background: AIGA @ CSU, Chico is a student Graphic Design club. AIGA, however, stands for the American Institute of Graphic Arts. It is a national organization for design professionals. Our fabulous snack coordinator, Tory, set the bar high for us in terms of deliciousness at the beginning of the semester, so we have each taken turns trying to outdo one another for our snacks at meetings. I, for example, put on a Cookie-palooza. Four different types of cookies. FOUR. Made from scratch. Don't mess with me...
Anyways, so all in all, we at AIGA CSU, Chico have a strong history of scrumptious snacks. This being said... our potluck was freaking bomb-diggity.
Here's what I brought:
Rosemary Honey Couscous
I love this recipe because it is fairly quick and seems to impress.
Once again, my iPhone and I are very sorry for the ghastly lighting in my kitchen
I made a giant amount since I was bringing it to a potluck, but for a normal amount you'll need:
1 C couscous (whole grain or regular will work)
1 C water
1/2 C honey
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
3 TBS rosemary (fresh)
1/4 C raisins
1/4 C dried cranberries
Note: Keep in mind, in terms of the honey:vinegar ratio, I normally just guestimate to get a balanced flavor. I don't usually like it to taste TOO honey-ish or TOO vinegar-ey. So, if these amounts don't work for you, go ahead and add a splash of vinegar or just a bit more honey! Find what works for you.
Mix it all together (take out that whole rosemary sprig) and TA-DA!!!!! Killer delicious couscous. Deceivingly simple. Yum Foodie Foodie.
