  1. Peel and finely chop the garlic clove. We do the same with the onion, cutting it into fine julienne. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry both over low heat. When the onion is transparent, add the ras el hanout and stir to mix. Saute for a couple more minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wash the zucchini and cut it into cubes. We add it to the pan along with the crushed tomato and the water. Season, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the zucchini is slightly tender and al dente. We remove and reserve.
  3. We prepare the couscous by toasting the spices that our ras el hanout offers, in this way they give off their smell and enhance their flavor. We place the couscous in a measuring jug to calculate the amount of broth needed, which will be the same volume. Add the broth to the pan, bring to a boil and add the couscous. Cover and let stand 10 minutes.


We serve the couscous together with the vegetables flush with the hanout and we recommend sprinkling toasted flaked almonds on top.
