Start by cutting up the skinned pumpkin into small chunks. I used that smaller "pie pumpkin" found at the grocery store. Once you have chopped the pumpkin, steam until tender (about 20 minutes; a fork should be able to pierce with ease). Once pumpkin is done set aside. Start couscous (I used brown rice couscous), the trick is you only cook on the burner for about 10-15 minutes then remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 more minutes without lifting the lid. Mince garlic (or you can use the jar minced garlic), chop onion and apple (i left the skin on) into small cubes. On low/medium heat in a pan, add olive oil and butter allow to melt slowly. Once the butter has melted add garlic and onion, allow to flavor the oil by cooking for about one minute stirring once or twice. Turn heat up to medium then add apples, cranberries, steamed pumpkin, and spices. Saute the veggies and fruit for about 4-5 minutes on medium heat or until soft. Once your couscous is done, fluff the couscous and then add the fruit and veggies and fold over until mixture is even. Then serve and enjoy!
