i loved this dish... love savoury cous cous but this is teriffic and flash servied up at family brunch and was happly recieved .... a friend suggested chop up a chocolate bar for decodence..
Great comforted food. The hot milk combined with the dates and couscous makes this dish feel like your favorite old blanky. This is really quite sweet, so if you don't like really sweet may want to cut the sugar / Splenda. Made as written using you recommendation of butter instead of oil. Also used toasted pecans for the nuts. A sprinkling of cinnamon went really well on the leftovers. Cut the recipe in half and had 4 large servings which could have easily feed 6. Will be making this again. Thanks for the post.
