This was fantastic. I substituted Near East roasted-garlic couscous for the bulgur because it is quicker (5 minutes) and my family likes it better. It was perfect with the cranberries and 5 spice (I held the extra salt). DH really loved this dish. It tastes like you slaved for hours in the kitchen when it really is a quick and easy dinner to prepare. I would make this for dinner guests too, in a heartbeat.
