This was a great dish and would also be good to make as a big batch for work lunches.

Quick and easy, great as a side dish for BBQs as well as the lamb tagine recipe as suggested. I add chick peas and feta and sometimes use giant cous cous instead of the normal type, which also works really well.

Made this today to go with Lamb Tagine was lovely. Couldn't find any fresh mint so used dried, brilliant. Would be good served as a salad.

Really nice served with the Moroccan Lamb receipe on here. I used Ainsleys own brand of moroccan cous cous with this as worked well with the lamb dish. Was delicious

I cooked this for a dinner party for ten people, served with the Lamb and date tagine. It went down a storm...everyone loved it. However, the quantities on the couscous for ten is really not enough. I upped it to 500g of couscous, but it still all went and my guests would have eaten more if there had been some available! To be generous, I think 700-750g would be a bettere quantity. Very tasty and delicious with the tagine.
