      Really good. I didn't include almonds as I'm not keen, nor chickpeas. One which will be done again. I suspect there is room for experimentation with various flavours of fruit juice.

      I made this for breakfast today and loved it. I replaced the chickpeas with chopped dried apricots and sprinkled the almonds and some cinnamon on it. It was wonderful, quick and very simple. A delicious Sunday switch for my usual oatmeal. Made for Photo Tag.

      We are crazy for couscous in this house and this recipe is so good...loved cooking the stuff in the OJ :) -and loved the flavor that it lent it... I don't buy it packaged so I just brought the juice (i had to dilute it somewhat with water because i only had one cup so i did 1cup grain, 1cup OJ and 3/4 H2O) to boil added the couscous and chopped apricot...was not in a almond mood (okay, I was too lazy to chop some up and toast them) so used a mix of pumpkin and sunflower seeds instead and heated those with the chickpeas - ...tossed in grated orange peel at the end (from the orange i juiced to boil) =ed DE- LISH& the most fabulously fun colors...thank so much mliss29!!! :) a new fave way to serve my Husband his favorite side! Made for the Healthy Choices Game & served with grilled tofu... but will be made again and again now :) {{and could be breakie the next day too!!! :)}}
