      Smells wonderful!, easy to make & tastes great! My first time ever trying Moroccan food, i was worried it'd be too spicy... seems like the flavors may increase as it sits there. I substituted scallions for red pepper, doubled the celery, used only 1/4 tsp black pepper, added a cup of carrots ... very happy with the results!

      I tried the recipe and it was nice but I found it a bit bland so I added some cumin which seems to have done the trick but it is still not hundred persent. I still think that something is missing. The recipe was very easy to make.
