    JustJanS's Note:

    I love couscous, and this is a variation I make quite often. You could use golden raisins instead of the craisins but I think they taste yummy.

      Divine! We are major couscous eaters in our house, and this one passed all the tests. I used whole wheat couscous, and never ever thought of mixing them with snow peas, and it's a great match. The preserved lemons add a wonderful flavor, I mixed them in instead of using them as a garnish. I'm not a fan of mint in my couscous, so I just left it out. This made just enough for dinner and a bit left over to take into the office for lunch the next day. Thanks for the new twist on an old favorite, Jan!

      I made as per recipe (scaled back for 2 serves which fed 3 of us) but served at room temperature and we thoroughly enjoyed all the flavours that were incorporated into the couscous, didn't use any of the garnishes though (didn't have them on hand). thank you JustJanS, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 14.

      Love this couscous! Made the recipe exactly as posted, but didn't use any garnish at all. The flavors work great together and the craisins (which I actually threw into the couscous while it was cooking) add a lightly sweet and very complimentary touch. I had a few leftover bites out of the fridge when it was cold and it was still delish. Thank you for posting.
