Couscous with mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes

Total Time:

50 minutes

Originaly Yeild:

6 servings




80 g,  sun-dried tomatoes, from a bag (not stored in oil)

535 ml,  water

215 g,  couscous

1 tbsp,  olive oil

4.50  garlic, finely chopped

1.50  spring onions, chopped

25 g,  fresh basil leaves

0.75  lemon, juice

0.25 tsp,  salt and black pepper powder
