"A quick, filling vegetarian meal. The vegetable broth makes it heartier than some couscous recipes. Serve with plain yogurt."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

yellow onion, chopped
chopped sun-dried tomatoes
chopped fresh dill
chopped frozen spinach
pale dry sherry
cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 (15 ounce) can
whole wheat couscous
salt to taste
A very decent dish with a few personally motivated modifications. I omitted the sun dried tomatoes and dill because I'm not a fan of either and secondly I thought they (the sun dried tomatoes) might taste odd with the other ingredients.
Instead I used what I had in the fridge which was a red bell pepper and two small tomatillos (which added a great tartness to the dish) It turned out very well with all of the other ingredients and to finish I mixed in a dollop of Greek yogurt to add a little acidic creaminess and make it almost korma like. Very tasty.
Just didn't work for us. Good healthy concept but seemed to be missing something.
Excellent recipe; it was very filling and flavourful and my b-f loved it. Will definitely make again.
I'm writing this directly after making and eating this dish for the first time. It is a very filling and hearty meal, which is something I look for when I cook vegetarian. -- I cooked it with golden couscous instead of whole wheat, omitted sun-dried tomatoes, and added about a 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes to it later in the process. Everything about this dish was good & I will likely consider making it on a monthly basis. The only thing I may consider altering further is adding a bit more veggie broth. The final product I made wasn't too dry but it could've been a little wetter.
I used less olive oil--just drizzled to my liking and used 2 large English cucumbers, seeded. Other than the tedious peeling and chopping of the fresh garlic, it was pretty quick. Next time I will just use my garlic press to speed things up.
Awesome exactly as written!
Excellent recipe! Based on suggestions and supplies, I left out the tomato and dill and used fresh spinach. Everyone really liked it and I was firmly told to make it again!
Skipped the chickpeas, tossed in some chopped dates, added cumin. Very nice recipe!
