  • 1 cup couscous, rinsed
  • 3/4 lb broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • 2 big handfuls baby arugula
  • 1/3 cup currants
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced


Step 1

Add couscous to boiling salted water with olive oil, and cook until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the couscous and set aside.

Step 2

In a separate pot of boiling water, add the broccoli, stalks facing up, and cook until tender yet still slightly crisp. Remove broccoli, and chop tops into bite-sized pieces.

Step 3

Place currants in a small bowl and rehydrate with some of the boiling water. Then, carefully add the sherry vinegar to bowl and stir.

Step 4

In a large bowl, combine the arugula, zest and juice of 1 lemon, paprika, chopped broccoli, pine nuts, rehydrated currants, salt and pepper, then carefully stir in the cooked couscous and toss well. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.
