Author Notes: Couscous is a simple and very nutritious dish to prepare. And toasting the almonds adds a tremendous amount of flavor, so don't be tempted to skip it!

Cooking tip: Toasting the almonds adds a tremendous amount of flavor, so don't be tempted to skip it. Simply put the almonds in a 350 degree F oven when the couscous is resting for 5 minutes. By the time the couscous is ready, your almonds will be toasted. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/almond-couscous
