Ingredients

  • 12 Pork Chipolata Sausages or use 8 thick pork sausages
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Red Onion peeled, halved and sliced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves peeled and chopped
  • 1 Carrot peeled and chopped
  • 1 Red Pepper sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Plain Flour
  • 2 tablespoon Tomato Puree
  • 600 ml Chicken Stock
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large shallow casserole with lid and brown the sausages on a medium heat. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the sliced red onion and garlic and cook on a medium heat until the onion has softened (about 4-5 minutes)
  • Add the chopped carrot and red pepper and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the flour, thyme and smoked paprika and stir for 1 minute.
  • Pour in the stock and add the tomato puree. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to low. Put the sausages back into the pan at this point.
  • Simmer with a lid on, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season before serving.

Notes

Variations:
  • Swap the pork sausages for veggie sausages to make it vegetarian-friendly.
  • Use different vegetables in the casserole such as mushrooms, courgettes, spinach or leeks.
  • If your kids struggle with eating vegetables just use the ones you know they will eat, even if that means there's just carrot! A handful of frozen peas or sweetcorn could also be added for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Up the protein by adding a drained can of butter beans or cannellini beans for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Make it spicy by adding 1 teaspoon chili powder at the same time as the smoked paprika.
  • Use beef stock for a richer flavour, or vegetable stock if you're making this vegetarian-friendly.
  • Use fresh thyme instead of dried if you have it to hand.
  • Make this in your slow cooker. Just chuck everything into your slow cooker basin and cook on low for 6-8 hours. I advise reducing the stock to 500ml if you decide to slow cook it.
