      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.

      This was delicious. I didn't have any currants, so used raisins instead. It was very easy to make.

      This was super! Just the right amount of spices. I used toasted cashews. I have always added toasted pinenuts to my couscous dishes, but I really liked the cashews, sweet and salty. I didn't have currants, so I used 1/4c dark raisins and 1/4c Craisins (sweetened dried cranberries). The craisins added a nice color to the dish. I served this with a brown sugar/soy base glazed, grilled swordfish and lightly sauteed zucchini, tomatoes and onions. A colorful presentation. DH said to put this meal on the "Company" list. Thanks Dancer^.
