Quick and easy to make and it was delicious! I was out of shallots so I used extra onion. I used regular raisins and added some chopped up dried apricots. It was really good! I will definitely make this again.

I added 2 Tbsp lemon juice (not 3), and that suited our tastes fine. An additional Tbsp would have been too lemon-y for us (personal taste). This couscous is rich with flavor, the raisins and sun dried tomatoes bring a little sweetness, and the tartness of the lemon brightens it. It was a little gummy and dry, so I did add some vegetable broth to moisten it slightly. Very nice, would make again.

This was pretty good. There's not much to say about it. I threw in a can of chickpeas to make it a main dish.
