      We really enjoyed this dish!! I made as directed with one exception. I didn't use the orange sections..personal preference. I did find however, that the cumin/cinnamon could have been increased to round out the flavour a bit more. It seemed to get lost in the background. I love the combination of cumin/cinnamon together and is a very important part of Moroccan cooking. That is the only thing I will change next time I make it. It was quick and easy to put together. Thank you lazyme for this wonderful keeper.
