Have I mentioned I love my slow cooker? Well, here it is again. I love my slow cooker. This meal was awesome and it was in the crockpot by 9 am and dinner was done. The couscous just takes like 10 minutes.
This was chock full of hearty veggies and it smelled so good while cooking!!
I don't know too much about this kind of cooking, I thought it was an indian dish but it turns out it is a Moroccan recipe. Amazing what you can learn from Wikipedia! What did people do before google?
