    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! The couscous is divine and defintiely worth the effort. I made my own Ras el Hanout, which is easy peasy in the Thermomix (and you can then store for future moroccan dishes such as burgers, koftas etc), so DO GIVE THIS A TRY!

    Here's my mix for Ras El Hanout - all ingredients in TM bowl and mill (sp9, 10-20 seconds) until just right: 

    • 1 tablespoon ground  cumin
    • 1 tablespoon ground  coriander
    • 1 tablespoon turmeric
    • 1 tablespoon paprika
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground  cardamom
    • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
