While most Moroccan food is not sweet, this is one dish that is an exception to the rule. It is traditionally served after the Yom Kippur fast, perhaps to emphasize that the coming year should be a sweet one.

Super easy and quick, it takes about 15 minutes to prepare.


1 bag instant whole wheat couscous
250 gr. fava beans-fresh or frozen (1/2 lb.)
1/2 black raisins
1/4 cup olive oil

Prepare the couscous according to the package. Salt and add oil and lemon

Soak the raisins in hot water for 10 minutes.

Cook the fava beans.

Serve the couscous, fava beans and raisins in three seperate bowls. Place on the table along with the sugar and spices. On the individual plates, combiine the three ingredients and sugar and spices.
