    This was good, quick to make and adapted easily to the crock pot. The soup was prepped on stove top then transferred to a crock pot and cooked on LOW for about 3 hours. The tomatoes were canned organic fired roasted. I lightly toasted the couscous in olive oil before adding it to the crock pot the last 15 minutes. Served with a basic salad that included seasonal ingredients and the soup was a welcomed meal on a chilly, snowy day. Make My Recipe Downunder, February 2014.

    Sadly it was just too much tomato flavor for me. I like tomato soup though... maybe I should have added some sugar as a previous reviewer mentioned. I added sour cream. I would have liked more couscous. And I would like more cumin maybe as the cumin was lost in the tomato as it stands.

    Very tasty soup. My DH loved it. I love addition of tomato paste as it gives strong flavor. I added 1Tbsp. of sugar to cut acidity and it gives soup a bit of sweetness. Used 2 vegetable stock cubes. I cooked it for 30 min. and than puree the soup for nice smooth texture. The consistency of the soup was just perfect not too thick or too watery. I cooked the couscous separately and added to the soup at the time of serving. Garnished with fresh chive and served with crusty cheese crostini. Definitely keeper! Made for January 2012 swap recipe. Thank you Leggy Peggy!
