This was really very quick, easy to make and tasty. I only added one cup of vegetable stock as this was enough. Next time I will not be using the star anise as I do not like the taste but otherwise this recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for submitting.

This was a quick and very tasty recipe. The mixture of spices made my kitchen smell wonderful, and they tasted really good, too. I think it'd be a good idea to use hot (or even boiling) stock for this, otherwise there is some risk of your couscous not fully absorbing it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
