Winter Warmers - Sausage & Bean Casserole.

Hey Guys!
Hope your all okay?
My last recipe blog post did pretty well so I thought I would upload another hearty meal recipe.
This time a Sausage and Bean casserole,different with chorizo sausages as well as pork!
You want to start by heating 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan.
Add One chopped onion into your pan and gently cook for five minute's.

Chop 2 medium celery sticks.

And one red pepper and one yellow pepper.

Add these into the pan and cook for a further 5 minute's.

You then want to fry 6 chorizo sausages and 6 pork sausages in the same pan (of course do it in other if your pan doesn't have the room..)

After this you will want to add 3 chopped garlic cloves, 1 1/2 teaspoons of sweet smoked paprika,1/2 tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of dried thyme.
Cook this for 1 - 2 minute's until the aromas release.

Pour in 125ml of Wine.
Stir the pan to stop any residue sticking to the sides.

Add in 800g of Tinned Tomatoes and bring to a simmer.

Crumble in a stock cube - i used these stock pots they're my favourites to use while cooking.
Add some fresh thyme then cook for 40 minute's.

In the last 5 minutes of cooking you will want to put in your beans,the recipe calls for Aduki beans which I couldn't find so used kidney beans.
 Remove the thyme sprigs and season with black pepper.

And Serve.
You could eat this with mash,I actually ended up not eating it because had a sickness bug but hubby said it was delish!
Hope you all enjoy.
Stay Safe & Speak Soon.


  1. That looks amazing! I'm a vegetarian though, and I don't think the Quorn sausages would work that well. I'm definitely going to make it for my family though!
