    Highly recommend this recipe! It is very good and simple to make. Next time I'll try pineapple instead of the apricots for variety. I bought a 6 oz. bag of dried apricots and it was exactly 1 cup. I like curry so I'll increase the amount of curry a little, but NOT to 1/2 tsp. A must try recipe for those considering making it!

    This taste tastes amazing and is easy to make. We changed it a little by adding a bit less apricot and more onions. Great no matter which way you make it.

    I thought this was good, and a little different than the types of things I normally prepare. The apricots give the couscous a very mild sweet taste, but as a whole, I would not say that the dish is sweet. It was very good, and I will definitely make it again.
