      This was really good. The only change I made was to decrease the couscous to 2c, which made plenty for the 4 of us. The package said the water:couscous ratio is 1:1 so I still used 2c water & it came out perfect. Made for Winter NA/ME Tag 2013. :)

      I reduced the amount to 2 servings and it made exactly that, a perfect 2 servings. Couldn't resist using my tagine for cooking so once everything was mixed I just put it into the tagine and in the oven at 350F for 30 mins and it turned out wonderful. I didn't add any sugar to the onions (and didn't miss it in any way) but all else was by the recipe. I might add some parsley or something such next time only to add a some color, it really doesn't need anything extra flavor wise, it's delicious.
