    NurseJaney's Note:

    Searched ALL 497 recipes, but did not find THIS one !! It came from a very old Bon Appetit, and the addition of cinnamon, lemon peel, and golden raisins give a Mediteranean flair. It is quick, easy, and makes a different side, if you are tired of potatoes and/or rice.

      I scaled back for 3 serves and still had a serve left over which the DM has claimed for lunch (I'll add a little diced fresh pineapple I have left over and some diced roast pork to round it off for her) and I did used sultanas instead of golden raisins. Thank you NurseJaney made for I Recommend tag and game and recommended by Boomette.

      Great couscous recipe! The addition of the garbanzos makes this very filling, perfect for me for lunch. I had regular raisins (not golden) on hand so used those; I did plump them in some warm water first. The lemon flavor is perfect in this and the cinnamon is subtle but a nice touch. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      It's so yummy and filling. Usually I'm not into cinnamon in main dishes or sides. But I tried it and it's great with the couscous and garbanzo :) Thanks NurseJaney :) Made for the Australian Swap for January 2012
