    Izzy Knight's Note:

    This is the first Moroccan dish I've ever cooked for my family, and they were thoroughly impressed. I thought with all the rich spices, it might be too overwhelming for the kids, but they really enjoyed the combination. A good change from cold couscous salad for the winter. (from the Toronto Star)

      We overall enjoyed tihis served with JustJanS's recipe 181365 but would double the onion filling side of it (I did scale it back to 1 cup of couscous which served 3 of us and used 1 1/2 cups of vegetable stock) as I felt more was needed to mix into the couscous and I also cut the cooking time back as it was drying out and added a little water to moisten but overall the flavour was good tough I did use sultanas instead of raisins as that was what I had. Thank you Izzy Knight, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.
