The Taste Test

I had previously bought these Linda MaCartney Vegan Sausages, they were TERRIBLE. I can’t even begin to describe them to you. My sister, genius that she is, came up with the perfect way to mask their awful taste and make a delicious stew out of them with some canellini beans and chopped tomatoes. It is SUCH a simple recipe, makes 4-5 servings and i recommend you try it, vegan or not vegan..substitute what you need to…it is amazing.

1 can canellini beans (i used waitrose organic ones, but you can use any beans you have, my sister swears baked beans would work too)..

2 cans chopped tomatoes (again, i used waitrose organic ones with chopped garlic, but you could use fresh tomatoes too..5 ripe medium sized ones should do…)

2 leeks

3 cloves of garlic

300-350g of any kind of sausage you like, pre-cooked and chopped into pieces as big or as small as you wish….(i told you it was a serious no-fuss recipe)

place everything into an oven proof dish, sprinkle in any dry or fresh herbs you have on hand (i used dill, sage and some dry chilli flakes as well as freshly ground sea salt and black pepper), give it a quick stir, whack it in the oven at 180 degrees for anywhere between 45mins – 1.5hrs depending on how much time you have. Once it’s ready, serve with some crusty whole wheat bread or mashed potatoes or even on it’s own and enjoy!

As you can tell i’m not much of a recipe writer, but this is soooo easy you can’t go wrong! I topped off my evening with a small bowl of that soy dream chocolate fudge ice cream and Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol in bed. Perfect Saturday. I’m looking forward to making those banana muffins for breakfast tomorrow.
