Sauté until softened, about 2 minutes.  Add the remaining vegetables with a pinch each of the salt and pepper. Cook until squash and potatoes are just tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.

2. Press Start/Stop and add the couscous, broth, cinnamon stick, remaining salt and pepper, cumin, and zest. Close the lid of the cooker. Select the Small Grains function and press Start/Stop.

3. Once the audible tone has sounded to indicate the end of cooking, open the lid and remove the cinnamon stick. Stir in the apricots and serve.
