Add carrots and sweet potatoes to Dutch Oven; boil gently for ten minutes. Stir in zucchini, chick peas and raisins. Combine Couscous and sautéed onion in steamer or colander which fits snugly in Dutch Oven without touching stew. Cover tightly and steam for 20 minutes. Toss Couscous to separate grains. To serve, place couscous grains on large hot platter. Surround with meat and vegetables. Serve broth and Harissa (a form of red chili paste) on the side.
