    Happy Hippie's Note:

    This sounds like a very interesting recipe. Found on the website. It was submitted by Truckerdoo. Here's his introduction. "Vegetables, garbanzos, raisins and couscous in a lovely Moroccan broth taste delicious inside butter and brown sugar-brushed acorn squash. You can experiment with different vegetables, or add diced chicken. Feel free to be creative with your amounts - I usually freestyle and end up with leftover stuffing mixture, which tastes great on its own the next day. For vegetarians, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth."

      This was good, but I felt it needed a little more sweetness. Next time I'll add some honey to the couscous.

      Loved the exotic flavors, but not too spicy. This is a great way to use some of the squash harvested in the fall. I will definitely make this again.
