The Pisces birthday cycle is here! With a New Moon tomorrow, I think all of us children of Neptune should take time to energize our bodies and minds with some delicous and Pisces-appropriate food. Time to forget the past and to get ready for all the great things to come? If so, it is time to make my Pearl Couscous with Artichoke and Almonds. 

1 package of frozen artichokes

1/2 cup chopped almonds

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon kosher salt

3 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled

1 1/4 cup pearl couscous

4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

10 chopped Kalamata olives

1/3 cup dried apricots or cranberries, chopped

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Thaw the artichokes prior to preparing the dish.

Using a small skillet, roast the almonds over medium heat until fragrant and golden. Remove and place in a bowl.

Add 4 cups water to a saucepan and add the olive oil,  salt and garlic. Bring mixture to a boil. Add the artichokes, cut in halves; lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove artichokes with a slotted spoon to a large bowl.

Bring the cooking water to a boil again, add the pearl couscous, lower heat and simmer until tender, 8 to 12 minutes; drain. Mix the couscous, almonds, mint, olives, artichokes, dried fruit and pepper. Drizzle with some oil, toss and serve. 

This dish is excellent by itself or as a side dish for a nice grilled skirt steak or poached fish fillet.
