Roasted mushrooms with spinach and giant cous cous

Another recipe adapted from the Roasting Tin. The original recipe has artichoke and yoghurt but I didn’t have either! I used the bag of spinach in the fridge and a knob of butter. The basil plant that I repotted in the garden was not ready ready to make an apperance on any dinner plates so I omitted it. Another time maybe…

It actually took me 40 minutes to cook the dish. After 20 minutes the cous cous was still raw, so I put the dish back in the oven for a further 20 minutes. I added so goats cheese over the top to add to make it nice and creamy. It was a nice tasting dish, subtle and not at all overwhelming or overpowering. In the future pretty easy to adapt really, chose your vegetables

250g chesnut mushrooms, halved

280g jarred artichokes in olive oil drained

  1. Preheat you oven to 180oC fan/200oC/gas 6. Place the mushrooms, artichokes, onion, garlic, artichoke oil and cous cous in a roasting tray, and give everything a really good stir to coat it in the oil. Add the vegetable stock, stir, cover tightly with foil, then transfer it to the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
