Couscous with apricots, almonds, and blue cheese.

To make the couscous, put equal parts couscous and boiling water in a bowl. Cover the bowl with a plate and leave it to steam cook itself for five minutes.

Cut a bunch of dried apricots into quarters and crumble up a bit of blue cheese.

When the couscous has absorbed all the water, fluff it with a fork and stir in the apricots, blue cheese, and a bunch of almonds.

I like sliced or slivered almonds with this dish, but you could definitely use whole almonds instead, or a different kind of nut. (Or leave out the nuts altogether if you’re allergic to them.)
