    Delicious Bits's Note:

    This was inspired from some gourmet sausages at my favourite butchers that has won many awards (Moroccan Lamb and Raisin Sausages). I also used some of the spice mix from #63885 as a base. I love the flavours!!! Then I add all of the vegetables too, a bit like a chow mein, I guess. It freezes well too and great that it's an all in one recipe.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine first 10 ingredients in a small bowl or jar. (These are fairly forgiving. You can double or triple the quantities and leave them in a jar for next time.).
    2. 2
      Toast almonds and pine nuts if not already done. Careful NOT to burn. Can place in a non stick fry pan or a saucepan on low heat until they start to brown or are golden. Remove from heat, place on a towel or paper towels to cool. Nuts keep browning slightly after being removed from their heat source.
    3. 3
      Put couscous and raisins in a bowl and pour boiling water and orange juice over them. Allow to sit while you cook. (Adjust the water/juice to the instructions of how to cook the couscous. Try not to add too much liquid, it will go soggy).
    4. 4
      Over medium to high heat, put oil in a large fry pan with approximately 2tb of the mixed spices. Cook through til fragrant (1-3 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add garlic and ginger and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stirring and careful not to burn.
    6. 6
      Add onion, cook til transparent. Add mince, cook til browned. Add carrot, mix through then add cabbage, a bit at a time so it reduces. Add capsicum (red pepper).
    7. 7
      Taste for flavours. Season with salt or pepper or if you have more spices left, add more if necessary.
    8. 8
      Add nuts, cous cous and raisins and mix through.
    9. 9
      Serve.

      tasty, but i would recommend adding more than the required amount of spices. and complimenting it with a yoghurt or chutney sauce.
