My mom is moroccan and I always wanted her recipe for what she called her cous cous. I decided to try this recipe just to see if it would come close. This recipe is almost exactly her recipe. I doubled the spices (except the cinamon and salt) and added about 1 tbs of corriander. I eyeballed the olive oil and I added a bit of beef broth to the mixture near the end because I like my curry more runny. You wouldn't want to add the broth in the end if you don't. I sauteed lamb pieces in olive oil and cumin prior to putting in with the veggies. I served over basic cous cous and it's almost exactly her recipe without taking 2 full days to prepare. Thank you so much!

A lot of flavor for a vegetable curry! We used orange juice, but I'll definitely try the carrot-ginger if my health food store carries it. I used frozen peppers, added a few minutes before the spinach, and frozen spinach; both worked well.

I think this is one of the best things I have ever eaten in my entire existence. I've made it 4 times in the last month! I despise eggplant, so I added an extra sweet potato and an extra zucchini, and it was fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I do not add salt, and I used canned low-sodium garbanzo beans to cut back on the sodium. My neighbors smelled this cooking from next door, and ended up staying for dinner. The smell is indescribably intoxicating, not to mention the TASTE! This is definitely a keeper. Yes, you will be chopping until your arms want to fall off, but so what? The end result is worth it, thanks so much for sharing this recipe!!!

This was a very hearty, colourful curry. We noticed a few errors in the recipe: The description says carrot-ginger but nowhwere in the ingredient list does it list ginger. In the Directions section, the ingredient cayenne is missing - should be added.

This is a very tasty North African dish. I added a bit more spice and garlic to the the mixture because I don't like bland. This was served true Moroccan style over husband loved it and said it brought back memories of his time in Casablanca. If one didn't want the vegetarian and wanted to keep with the Moroccan tradition, lamb cubes could also be added. I think I will try that next time.

Excellent flavours in this recipe, but it needs a little tweaking. I doubled the spices and found it to be quite zingy, however I can't imagine having how mild it would have been with the original amount of spice. This recipe serves 6 as a main course or 8 as a side dish. I used carrot orange juice and grated fresh ginger, which worked well. This is not a pretty dish to look at, but close your eyes and the flavours are beautiful!

great flavor-be careful not to overcook te vegetables. the vegetables are best just a bit crisp. Add spinach just before serving up the dish.

Really flavourful, and easy to make I served over Basmati rice. I made this exactly according to the recipe except I used carrot juice with some fresh ginger and it was really good. The almonds are important to the texture, I really reccomend trying this recipe.
