Very easy. I used 1 cup couscous and 1 3/4 cups stock and 1/4 cup OJ. I added about 1/4-1/2 tsp. of Garam Masala spice to the sauteed cauliflower and added toasted slivered almonds at the end.

The flavor was magnificent, and it was very easy to prepare. Gotta love one-pot recipes. I couldn't find currants that day, so I substituted raisins and cranberries. Great way to get grains and veggies in one.
