Cauliflower & Couscous Pilaf

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cauliflower_couscous_pilaf.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 2008

Pilaf is usually made with rice plus nuts, fruit, vegetables or even meat. In this version we use couscous instead of rice, so it's nearly instant, and add a sweet accent of orange and currants.

6 servings, generous 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cauliflower and salt; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add broth, orange zest, juice and currants; bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in couscous and scallions. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
