    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    This recipe is another Lucy Waverman recipe from Food and Drink Magazine. She says "It's good luck to have 7 vegetables in a CousCous Dish". Hmmm....maybe coriander is the 7th veggie? So I guess this will be a lucky recipe, enjoy! ;) Use vegetable stock to make this a vegetarian dish.

      Loved this, although I knew I would after reading the ingredient list! I have to admit, I messed this up a bit, but I still thought it came out great, so this is what I did: I used one whole small zucchini, and about half a cup of the carrot. I couldn't find any frozen diced turnip, and I didn't want to deal with cutting up a whole fresh turnip myself, so I added some frozen cut butternut squash instead. The rest of the veggies were measured as written. Because of the added veggies, it seemed as though I wouldn't have enough broth to properly soften the couscous, so I added a half-cup extra broth. I only had Israeli toasted couscous (larger grains) in the house, and it was still pretty chewy after 5 minutes of standing, so I put it back on the heat for about another 5 minutes. By this time, most of the squash chunks had dissolved into the couscous and became almost sauce-like. I didn't end up with dry fluffy couscous, but it was still delicious and the spicing was perfect. I served it with North African-Style Stewed Chicken. At some point, I would like to try it again (not messed up, of course, lol), and I"ll certainly give this a proper review when I do. At the moment, though, I just wanted to let you know that your recipe is delicious even when messed up, lol! Sorry, and thanks for posting :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 NA*ME

      Excellent recipe, so very easily and quickly made. I stopped for turnips on the way home and that was the hardest part :) A bit of chopping, and Bobs your uncle. I did pre-cook the carrots, onions and turnips, slightly, since DH doesnt enjoy crunchy vegetables, and I used a vegetarian garlic/herb broth. It doesnt get easier than this :) Thank you Leslie, this was made for ZWT 8, Pick-A-Pepper challenge

      This was much better the second day, more of the flavors came through. I would almost used one cup of cous cous to have the veggies more prominent. I used vegetable stock in my version. Prep for me took about 15 minutes as I have a touch of OCD and needed to have the veggies diced to approximately the same size, lol. Thanks!!! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6.
