Found this in Organic Style magazine. I don't like olives so I'll omit them, but I'm posting the original recipe here. Its served with couscous.

I left out the marjoram & lemon zest and added some ras el hanout & preserved lemon in its place. My husband thoroughly enjoyed this dish for dinner last night.
