Apricot Cranberry Couscous

I had been plotting (read: scouring for non-cutthroat priced apricots and cranberries) and planning to make this for the office potluck today. Unfortunately, I fell sick yesterday and was am now stuck at home on MC for two days so missing the chance to share it with the team(rumor has it my boss' famous chocolate cake is making an appearence! darn-it)...

Apricot Cranberry Couscous

Chopped dried apricots
Dried cranberry
5 tablespoon mango juice
250g couscous
250g water
salt to taste
1 tsp olive oil

1. In a pan, bring to a boil water, salt and olive oil. Once boiling, take off heat and stir in couscous. Add dried apricots and cranberry and cover the pan for about 10 minutes for couscous to turn all fluffy.
2. After 10 minutes, use a fork and seperate couscous grains while drizzling mango juice. Mix well and serve.

p/s: It tasted even better the next day chilled as all the fruity flavours came to the forefront.
