Very good indeed. I used whole wheat couscous and paired this with a Ras el Hanout seasoned pork chop along with some cooked chard. I love the versatility of couscous and this one was a real hit.

Me and DH liked this couscous a lot. I didn't use the sultana because DH doesn't like that in his couscous. It was great with toasted almonds. Thanks kate :) Made for ZWT9

Ohhhhh so good. I loved the preserved lemon in this couscous. It was probably my favorite part. The blend of nuts, etc... were also really nice additions. I loved it all! Thank you. Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9
