Couscous recipe

I am looking for a recipe ( or should I call it a method) for couscous with dried fruits and nuts. Would I plump up the fruit first and then add it with roasted nuts at the end? I think that's the method I've seen somewhere.
Thanks in advance.

I often times add toasted pine nuts and dried cranberries to my couscous and I add just as the couscous is done cooking - as I'm 'fluffing' it up. I don't 'plump' the dried fruit first.
an old cook, still learning new tricks!
