I also added chopped apricots.

I added a level teaspoon of bouilion to boiling water before adding couscous.

Very simple to do and very tasty. I hate raisins (and sultanas) so I chopped up some dried apricots instead - which worked wonderfully well.

Have made this many times - it is easy and goes down really well at a party!

How easy was this? The hardest bit was zesting the lemon. 5-6 minutes and everyone thought it was great.
