Top Review by FruitLoop

WOW!! Dancer^ we really did enjoy this. I love couscous and an making believers out of my husband and family. I used cashews and toasted them as you suggested. The spices and currants really make this so yummy. I served this with pork roast and it made a great side dish. I could eat this as my main course I liked it so much. Thanks.
