Meat-free Sausage and White Bean Cassoulet

We keep being told we're going to have a heat-wave here in the UK; but it has to be said I'm thinking they are perhaps talking about next year!  So with summer sadly not too on the summery side at the moment, how about trying my meat-free sausage and white bean cassoulet? 

This easy one-pot meal is made with Quorn sausages which are high in protein and fibre but low in saturated fat this is a nice and filling but healthy kind of meal.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Quorn sausages but their 'Chef's selection are far nicer than the regular ones and make a meat-free meal in next to no time.

To serve 2 you will need:
Vegetable oil
1 pack of 4 Chef’s Selection Quorn sausages
1 large onion – peeled and finely sliced
2 carrots – peeled and finely sliced
2 sticks of celery – peeled and finely chopped
1 clove garlic – peeled and very finely chopped
1 x 400g tinned tomatoes including their juice
1 x 400g tin white kidney beans – rinsed and drained well
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
2 teaspoons sugar
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

How to do it:
In a flame proof casserole, heat a tablespoon of oil and brown the sausages.  Remove and set aside.

Now add the onions, carrots and celery and cook whilst stirring till soft but not coloured.  Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so.

Pour in the tomatoes including their juice along with the sweet paprika and sugar.  Now stir in the drained kidney beans and add back in the browned sausages and season with salt and black pepper.

Cook uncovered over a medium heat stirring now and then for about 30 minutes until the carrots are tender and everything has heated through. Have a taste and adjust the seasoning.  Serve piping hot with creamy mashed potato.

  1. We've not had much of a summer up here either, although last weekend was glorious. I think I am ready now for our winter again now that we had a weekend of summer. This recipe sounds like proper comfort food - yummy!
