This couscous makes a delicious accompaniment to lamb tagine and any other Moroccan style spicy dish. If you halve the recipe, it will feed 3-4 people very generously. From BBC Good Food.

Very good couscous. Lemon cut through the heat of the harissa and mint helped cool it down too. Made for ZWT6.

Talk about a nice combination of hot and cool. I think the mint and the harissa balanced each other very well, although I do have to admit to adding a bit more of each. I think the lemon worked out very well also, but I wish there was a bit more of it too.
