Welcome back to Recipe Roundup.
We often think of stews as heavy, winter comfort food but this sausage & bean version can be eaten all year around and is packed out with veg and fresh flavour.
What You Need
- Six Sausages
- Six Rashers of Bacon
- Any kind of large potatoes
- Your choice of green veg to serve
- 2 cans of beans of your choice (we used canellini and black-eyed here)
- 1 Onion
- 1 Red or Orange Pepper
- 3 Cloves of Garlic
- 3 Carrots
- 3 Celery sticks
- 1 Carton of Passata
- 2 tsp English or Wholegrain Mustard
- 1 tsp Horseraddish
- 1/4 tsp Hot Chilli Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1 tbsp Worcester Sauce
- 1 tsp Dried Thyme
- 1 tsp Dried Rosemary
- 2 tsp Schwartz Perfect Shake Classic BBQ seasoning (optional, or you can use the equivalent from another brand)
- 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
- 1 Cup Water (adjust depending on how thick you would like the sauce to be)
- Cook your sausages in the oven as normal
- Cut potatoes into large wedges, skin on. Parboil for 5-7 minutes before covering in Fry-Lite or a little olive oil, adding salt & roasting in the oven until crispy and golden.
- Cut the bacon into small strips and fry until crispy (remove fat and use Fry-Lite to keep this Slimming World friendly). Remove cooked bacon and set aside.
- Add the onion, garlic, celery, carrot and pepper to the pan and cook for five minutes until softened. Add a little water to the pan.
- Add all the remaining sauce ingredients at once and a little more water, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until veg is softened.
- Add the cooked sausages and bacon to the sauce and heat through.
- Serve with the wedges and your choice of green veg.
Tips & Tags
*Healthy Halo/Brilliant Batchcook/Freezable*
- What I love about this recipe is that it’s really flexible and a real “throw everything in a pot and see what happens” type of meal. A lot of the ingredients can be adapted to taste or swapped in for something else.
- The sauce is freezable and can be used at a later date with another meat or as a yummy pasta sauce.
- To make this Slimming World friendly use the Syn-free Slimming World Pork Sausages from Iceland.
