Free Healthy Recipe - Apricot Cous Cous Cake

Dairy free, Low fat, Low sugar

Another recipe from Karla Maverick, although called a cake it makes a great dessert.

2 cups dried apricots, chopped
pinch sea salt
2 cups water
roasted almonds slivered, for garnish
5 tbsp kudzu, dissolved in cold water
2 cups cous cous
½ cup raisins, chopped
pinch sea salt

Place dried apricots into a saucepan with a pinch of salt and 2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for 20 minutes.
Puree apricots and put them back into the saucepan. Adjust heat to lowest temperature.
Add dissolved kudzu, stirring constantly to prevent lumping. Simmer until apricot mixture becomes thick and then remove.

Wash cous cous and drain. Place apple juice or water in a pot. add raisins and sea salt and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce flame to medium low. Simmer about 10 minutes, then add cous cous, cover and simmer 2-3 minutes. Turn off flame and let cous cous sit covered for several minutes. The heat in the pot will cause the cous cous to cook thoroughly.
Remove and place cous cous in a glass or ceramic cake dish. Press cous cous down firmly with a rice paddle before adding the topping.

Spread apricot topping mixture evenly over top of cous cous cake to cover entirely. Garnish with roasted almond slivers.
