I was looking for something quick to cook with couscous, and let me tell you that this is DELICIOUS! Fast, easy, and healthy. I also added some cooked chicken and extra raisins, and feel very good about serving this. Thank you soo much:)

This was really good! I added some ground beef and tripled the spices to serve as a main dish. Thanks for the recipe!
