I read the comments here first and upped the seasoning to tablespoon each which seemed to work well. Easy to do and quite refreshing really

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.
