M O R O C C A N   CO U S CO U S

2 cups water, 1 cup couscous, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion, 1 shallot, chopped, 6 cloves of garlic, chopped in quarters, 1/2 cup golden raisins, 1 tablespoon butter, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 cup slivered almonds, 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes dipped in olive oil

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan and stir in the couscous. Cook about 10 to 15 minutes until couscous absorbs all the water. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the yellow onion, shallot, garlic, and then the raisins. Once gently cooked add the couscous to the raisin mixture with the softened butter. Place in a bowl and add the slivered almonds, sun dried tomatoes, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix one more time and serve the dish on separate plates.
