When I read the recipe I had to try it. This is unusual for me since I often judge recipes by the reviews. The flavors of the veggies and the fruit is fine. I did increase the amout of cinnamon and cumin each by 1 t., which then would be 2t. of each. Its a great recipe , colorful and deliciously tasty. Thanks social worker for posting, I'm sure you'll like it too.
PS I used dry fava beans which I soaked for 24 hours.
I love this recipe (and probably every recipe in Vegan Planet) and make it often. I don't use favas, I use chickpeas. The only other change I make is to add the dried fruit to to couscous not the stew. I also serve it with Sriracha sauce (sp? it's the one with the rooster on the bottle); it reminds me of harissa sauce that is usually served with couscous.
