I scaled for 4 serves and used 3/4 cups couscous to 1 cup water and left all other ingredients the same but found myself without cinnamon sticks so used 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and also used sultanas in place of the currants which all worked well for us and was thoroughly enjoyed, thank you CaliforniaJan, made for ZAAR Stars.

I was surprised that I liked this recipe as much as I did. I thought it was fantastic. The pistachios were my favorite addition. Easy to make earlier in the day and serve later. Thank you! ~Made for Zee Zesties on the ZWT6~

Loved this couscous - lots of great flavours happening here and I really liked the crunch of the pistachios. Thanks for a great recipe.

Enjoying this for lunch this week. Love the pistachios, apricots, and mint in this! I felt that the cumin was a bit strong and the cinnamon not strong enough, so next time I will play around with it and probably use ground cinnamon instead of cinnamon sticks. Also, I would cook the couscous in chicken broth instead of water to up the flavor even more. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6.

This was good! I made 4 servings, so my measures may have been off a bit for the spices and fruit. I think it needed more than I used. I'm not a huge fan of couscous, but I liked this alot. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT6 ~ NA*ME Region Kitchen Gadgets Challenge and the Queens of Quisine!

Made this for the couscous challenge for ZWT6. I'm so happy I picked this recipe out of all of the couscous recipes available. This was very good. DH loved it and thought it deserved 7 stars!
