Midweek Moroccan Mushrooms with Cous Cous

Here’s another filling meal packed full of vegetables and vitamins. Just what’s called for in the run up to Christmas! It seems that my veggie recipes get the most hits on the blog. Well actually – it’s a bit of a battle between crochet and vegetables! We are a healthy lot aren’t we? Or maybe…
