Top Review by ImPat

I scaled this back for 3 serves and I did substitute sultanas for the raisins and red capsicum for the green peppers but otherwise proceeded and made as per recipe but when I added the couscous and sultanas to to the liquid mix there was not enough liquid so had to add nearly a cup of hot/boiling water (would sub this with vegie stock in the future). Also I think I would dry roast the almonds (in an oil free pan) and then add them with the couscous and the raisins, giving a more even colour to the almond (oh I used blanched slivered almonds). Thank you AZPARZYCH for a lovely couscous recipe, made for Everyday A Holiday.
