    Recipe for 1. Easy lunch. If you want it to be vegetarian, add 1/2 cup of drained chickpeas and omit the tuna.

      Delicious, easy-to-make, colourful, low joule (calorie) and almost 1/4 of your daily fibre needs. Wow -- all this in one dish! It makes a fantastic lunch. I used 1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning because I didn't have any moroccan, and stirred in 1 teaspoon of butter. In future -- oh, yes, I'll be eating this often -- I'll try the moroccan seasoning and might add an extra tablespoon of lemon, just because I love lemon. Thanks Sonya.

      Wow. This is a 10 star recipe! I used #80983, Ras el Hanout Spice Mix for the moroccan spice. I sauted the onions and peppers a bit before adding them to the couscous. The flavors blended well and it was extra good the next day. thank you for a great recipe. I will make this often.
