Quick and Easy Moroccan Couscous

Quick and Easy Moroccan Couscous
Quick and Easy Moroccan Couscous

We’re such fans of this Moroccan staple that we could easily start a two-man appreciation society for couscous. We’d call it “Club Couscous” (please PM us for details).

There’s just so much to love about it: healthy, easy and hearty. We’re smitten. It also stores really well, so a bit for a mid-week vegan lunch superstar.

An absolutely brilliant choice for a speedy vegan lunch!
