A recipe for Moroccan Mushrooms using dried apricots from NI company, Forest Feast

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

I love Moroccan flavours. While they work particularly well with meat, I wanted to see if I could make them work with mushrooms. I have to say, I was delighted with the results.


I’m constantly trying to introduce more meat-free dishes into my diet.  I decided to try using Moroccan spices with mushrooms and was delighted with the results!

This recipe for Moroccan mushrooms is really easy to make and super healthy too.  I used some dried apricots from Forest Feast and the sweetness of them worked really well with the spices. I will definitely be making this again.

  1. This looks delicious. My family definitely eats too much meat. Mainly mince- chilli, bolgnese, meatballs, cottage pie etc! Will definitely try this!
