Very nice recipe using mainly cupboard basics. Had no apricots in so used lots of sundried tomatoes instead. Also sprinkled a handful of almond flakes over the top before serving. Very nice, easy and quick.

This was very quick and easy to make, but tasted quite bland until I added some harissa.

I really enjoyed this recipe, quick and stress free. My measurements of cumin, cinnamon and honey were a little more generous but otherwise I followed it fairly precisely. The apricots really added to the flavour, although I think I added a few too many to my single portion of couscous.

Great dish weeknight suppers. It's fast to prepare, super-healthy and tasty. What more could you ask for? Make sure you use the apricots as they add a nice twist to the cous cous.

Great quick and easy dinner. Will definitely make it again. Might add more cumin next time.

Simple recipe. But fairly bland. I added salt and a bit more cumin. But in the end had to put Tabasco on it to make it taste of anything!

Good for a quick easy veggie supper. Needs tons of parsley and seasoning.

Really quick and easy family meal to make! Great for an every night dish that needs to be fast and simple but wouldn't serve to guests as wasn't that exciting! However for every day had nice flavours and packed with goodness :)

Made this for supper last night as there was some gorgeous mushrooms in our veggie box. I didn't have any ground cumin so used cinnamon, cumin seeds and some morrocan spice mix which gave it quite a punch flavour. Also left out the apricots!

I've made this twice now, once having friends over for dinner and once for a family tea and both times it's gone down really well. The first time I didn't add the apricots to the cous cous but the second time I did and I think it really added to the flavour. This recipe is really easy to make and even my kids ate it which means it must be really really nice! Add lots of parsley on top, perfect for veggie dinner guests!
