    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    A healthy Moroccan dish. The array of vegetables mixed with seasonings on top of couscous provides ample nutrients and delicious flavour. I have successfully substituted rice for couscous. Recipe from "Power Eating".

      We have 400g cans of chickpeas in Australia, so that's what i used. We didn't have any fresh tomatoes on hand, so used approx 200g of canned crushed toms. We liked it, but didn't love it. I think it could do with more spices/herbs.

      Was a bit spicy and different for my taste that I had to mask it with another sauce. It's just ok for me hence the 2 stars.

      Wow! This was the first dish we made on our new "two vegitarian dinners a week" plan. We doubled the pepper flakes (we are HUGE heat fans) and the dish ROCKED! Didn't even miss meat!
