Very pleasant couscous recipe. I used vegetarian chicken flavoured stock which made it even lower in fat, and whole allspice which I crushed myself. quick and easy and it filled the gaps. Thank you Evelyn!

This was nice and lightly seasoned. It was my first time making and trying couscous and it was a good experience! :) I pretty much combined the instructions here with the instructions on the box of couscous (brought the ingredients to a boil before adding it to the couscous, then let it stand for 5 minutes. Then I added a touch of butter and fluffed it all up.) Yum! Thanks!
