Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the vegetable stock and porcini and bring to a boil.

Add the couscous and reduce to a low flame, cover and simmer until the couscous is tender and the liquids are absorbed. This will take approximately 10 minutes. Leave covered for 5 minutes to complete cooking.

Taste and adjust seasoning. Fluff up just before serving. Stir in the chopped basil.

To serve, garnish with sprigs of fresh basil.
