Moroccan Mushrooms with Chick Peas & Cous Cous

One of my favourite things about an iPhone is the ease of accessing recipes through the various food apps. I have so many food apps, most of which I actually use. I think this topic will require a separate post but in the mean time, one of my most frequented food apps is the BBC Good Food app. 

This dish is one that could be cooked in a tagine or if not a normal casserole. 

Recipe from BBC Good Food (slight altered version)


1 red onion, sliced
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
300g mushrooms, quartered
400g can of chopped tomatoes
410g can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp honey
175g cous cous
50g dried apricots, diced
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked black pepper
Handful of roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
100g green beans, trimmed

1. Fry the onion in the oil until softened. Add the cinnamon and cumin and cook for 1 minute stirring. Add the mushrooms, cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the tomatoes, chick peas and honey. Season with cracked black pepper and salt. Simmer for about 8 minutes.
2. Meanwhile mix the apricots and the dry cous cous in the a heatproof bowl. Add 250 ml boiling water to the bowl. Stir and mix and leave for 5 minutes or until softened. To serve, fluff up the cous cous with a fork.
