I haven't tried this yet, and I plan on halving the recipe because it's just my husband and I trying it. I will let you know how it tastes this week after I get the ingredients.

Recipe doesn't tell you when to add the olives - I did it at the same time as the lemons. I also left out the vegetable fat, and served with plain couscous instead of potatoes. It was a very nice recipe - everyone loved it (baby and toddler included)!
