Roast Vegetable Couscous With Oxo

oxo cookbook

When I was younger my mum would make us a stew, I always remember helping my mum crumble the OXO cube into the large saucepan, Oxo has long been part of family life, So I was delighted to get my hand on this wonderful Oxo Cookbook and some delicious Oxo stockpots to help me create a delicious recipe.

The Oxo Cookbook has an array of tasty recipes; from soups to one-pot wonders and pasta dishes.
I really wanted to share this recipe as it sounds delicious and something that I know the whole family would love.
