    Olha's Note:

    Here, slowly cooked squash and raisins add their flavour to a tasty broth that plumps up the couscous. Serve with a splash of hot pepper sauce.

      This recipe was simple to make and not very time-consuming. I enjoyed the taste and my guests called it fresh, buttery, healthy & hearty. It was a complete meal with many different food groups represented. I will definitely make it again.

      Tasty, filling, healthy, and easy to make. My picture is bleary at front but this is attractive. Next time I would add another 1/4 teaspoon pepper, as we love pepper! I garnished with cilantro and I think next time some pine nuts or chopped pistachio would add a nice crunch factor. Mine was done in 4 hours and 30 minutes. Lined my crock pot with a liner so the clean up was a breeze. Thanks Olga Drozd for posting. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
