“I had mint, apple juice, cider and a taste for something a little autumnal. This recipe was the result. I have not seen one quite like it before, though I am sure others have done it. Depending on your couscous, you may need more liquid, to let it stand longer, or you may prefer a little more butter or oil. Note, this is vegan and dairy-free if made with oil rather than butter.”
