Whole-Wheat Couscous with Summer Peaches and Pistachios Recipe

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 ½ cups water
1 cup whole-wheat couscous
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous, cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
