    morgainegeiser's Note:

    This superb Moroccan favorite can only be described as heavenly, with the combination of aromatic spices and crisp, brown onion adding a real spark to the subtle flavors of the lentils and couscous.

      Made for dinner using brown lentils. So easy to make. The lentils were served over saffron rice to make this a gluten free meal along with sliced tomatoes and papadums for a filling meal. Made for Aussie Swap.

      I made this dish for my lunch today. I used red lentils, as that was what I had on hand. I found this to be very easy to make with minimal prep. I did have to adjust the finished dish to include quite a bit more salt and pepper to taste and about 2 more pinches of cumin to get it how I liked it. I sampled multiple bites of lentils in the pan before serving them over the couscous. I actually preferred the dish without the couscous. Thanks for an enjoyable lunch that I will enjoy for leftovers tomorrow. Made for ZWT9
