Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

New Orleans–based reader Kathleen Wiltz loves adding coconut milk to her cold-weather dishes for a bit of tropical flair. 
To save time on this recipe, 
look for fresh butternut squash cubes in the refrigerated produce section of the supermarket.

  • 2 apples, cored and cubed
  • 4 Tbs. butter, divided
  • 3 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon, divided
  • 1½ cups couscous
  • 2½ cups coconut milk beverage, such as Silk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup golden raisins

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place squash and apples in baking dish, and add 2 1/2 Tbs. water. Roast 
15 minutes.

2. Melt 3 Tbs. butter with brown sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon in small saucepan over medium heat. 
Stir into squash and apples, and roast 10 to 15 minutes more, or until tender.

3. Meanwhile, combine couscous with remaining 1 tsp. cinnamon in medium bowl.

4. Combine coconut milk, salt, and remaining 1 Tbs. butter in small saucepan, and bring to

This is a delicious recipe. It is very flavorful. Because it is a little on the sweet side I found myself unable to eat a full portion. I think it would be a good side dish to a more savory main course. But that doesn't mean it's not filling. Tastes like warm comfort food.
