Wow! I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of using a 10 oz. box of frozen chopped spinach, which I thawed then added. It was so good - the spices were perfectly balanced with the sweet raisins and slight spice of the red pepper. The smell was wonderful as it cooked. My husband usually does not like meatless dishes, but he actually had some of this and really liked it. It was great to have on hand for leftovers as it reheated well. Mine looked just like the picture, too. Thanks!!
I really love this. I've made another stew, a moroccan one, quite a lot like it, but the addition of squash is fab! I almost doubled the spices, and instead of using chicken broth, just tossed in a bit of marjoram, sage and thyme with the couscous. Thanks a lot! Made for Please Review tag.
