I made this dish for my fiance once...and he absolutely loved it. Now that we're married, I prepare it for our dinner guests. Everyone likes it, and no one guesses they're eating "healthy". —Amy VanGuilder Dik of Minneapolis, Minnesota

"I make something similar but with chicken broth instead of water and currants instead of cranberries. Its my husband's favorite meal!"

"Loved it. I did not have enough cranberry so I added dried raisins and dried blueberries. Made the couscous w/ chicken stock and it was delish."
