      Bergy originally suggested this recipe as one we would like. Thanks Bergy! I'm normally put off by so many ingredients, but it was really easy to assemble (and that didn't take nearly as long as bijoudog suggested). Our cilantro was a bit sad, so I used a combo of mint and parsley instead, and didn't put the carrots in it. I made this with prunes, apricots, and a few pieces of crystalised ginger for the fruit. We had this over couscous with currants onions, and preserved lemon.

      I scaled this for 4 servings. This is absolutely delicious! Every bite was like a different blend of flavours. Loved the addition of the nuts and fruits. (I used apricots, raisins and prunes)This will be a favourite. Thanks for posting. =)
