Cast your vote for Cous Cous with Sausages

Ok, this is one of my easy dinner ideas and one of my best recipes for cooking cous cous. It's easy recipe that's ready in less than 20 minutes and uses only 6 ingredients from your store-cupboard. All you need is a pan/bowl in which to prepare the cous cous; a sharp knife to chop the onion, garlic and broccoli; and a pan to fry the onion, garlic and sausages. It can easily be modified to become a vegetarian recipe or a vegan recipe by simply omitting the sausages and using vegetable stock in place of beef stock.
