    Absolutely delicious!!! I put sultanas instead of olives in the couscous. I also add capsicum to the couscous. It also works with watercress instead of parsley. Once I didn't have enough pumpkin and substituted with sweet potato. That worked well

  • This was lovely.  I made mine

    Submitted by Cliftokj on 20. December 2012 - 06:53.

    This was lovely.  I made mine with left over rice I heated up then prepped as per the cous cous which was tasty  Next time I would only put in 1/2 tsp chilli flakes as the flavor was a little over powering. I would also put in the rind of an orange and some orange juice in with the stock for a more tangine flavor. Thanks for the recipe.
