Moroccan Stuffed Mushrooms

Coriander and cumin are zesty updates to the familiar stuffed mushrooms. The addition of couscous makes them very filling and delicious. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario

    I was disappointed with these. Couscous did not soften, even with added liquid. Tried doubling currants, adding cream cheese, and balsamic vinegar. All to elevate flavor profile and luscious factor worthy of holiday presentation. Could not attain.
