Recipe by GiddyUpGo

This recipe is from week five of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country on Earth, and Algeria is my fifth stop. Couscous has been called the national dish of Algeria, and this version is fragrant and delicious.

Perfect couscous dish - a wonderful blend of flavours! I used rice couscous to be gluten free, but that was the only change I made. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
