      I decided to try this dish since I had all of the ingredients on hand. Overall, a very tasty dish - both of us liked the combination of flavours very much. I don't think, though, that 10 minutes is sufficient cooking time as some of the couscous was still hard in places. Next time, I would increase the cooking time by maybe 5 minutes and add another half cup of liquid.

      Nice side dish. I used a large shallot in place of the onion.

      This is DELICIOUS!! My first time using Israeli couscous and it is so much better than regular couscous.
      The only variation I made to the recipe was to leave out the bell pepper and cashews, which I did not have on hand.
      All three of my toddlers ate it up and asked for seconds! Even my husband who does not like regular couscous said it was tasty and had seconds.
      I got my Israeli couscous from whole foods. I think it cost me $1 for a cup out of their bulk bins.
      Thanks for a great recipe that will definitely be part of my regular rotation!
