Meat Free Sausage and Bean Casserole

Serves 4

Sauage_Casserole_4

This was another recipe shared with us at the Quorn event. This was really simple to make and tasted really delicious. I loved the fact it was just like a sausage casserole without all the high fat sausages. That can often make a casserole a bit greasy. This had all the taste without the bad bits.

Sausage Casserole

Ingredients

6 Quorn Sausages, defrosted and cut into diagonal pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 red pepper, de-seeded and diced
1 green pepper, de-seeded and diced
100g sweetcorn
1 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsp mild chilli powder
400g tin chopped tomatoes
400g can of cannellini beans or broad beans, drained
250ml vegetable stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 bunch flat leaf parsley, finely chopped (optional)

Method

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and fry the Quorn Sausages for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden.

Remove from the pan and set aside to cool then slice diagonally into 5 pieces.

Fry the onions and garlic in the remaining oil until soft, then throw in the peppers and continue frying. A little water or extra stock will prevent sticking, if needed.

Sausage Casserole

Stir in the sweetcorn, paprika and chilli powder and cook for a few more minutes.

Pour in the tomatoes, beans and stock and return the Quorn Sausages to the pan.

Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Cover and simmer for 10 minutes before sprinkling with parsley.

  1. I love a good hearty meal and quorn is great too. I will have to test this out see what the kiddos think of it. Looks delicious. Thank you for stopping by LTM and linking up to SWM. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great round of #sharewithme

      I'm sure they'd love it. Although I'd keep the chillies toned down for the little ones. I made mine quite spicy and it was lovely. I've made extras and frozen it for lunch too - yum!

  2. My daughter loves the Quorn Chicken nuggets, we should try these. Tonight we had pasta in a sundried tomato pesto with sauteed veggies, the husband and I had sausage to add to ours, so we could all eat somewhat of the same meal. This would be a great solution for me, cooking dinner in 5 different pans is kind of a pain! LOL

      Oh I can imagine Nikki. I was a full veggie when I lived at home and my mum was so supportive, making me my own Quorn shepherd pie and things like that. I've not tried the Quorn nuggets, but I bet they are nice. I'm not even sure if I've seen them in the UK. Your dinner sounds yummy. I need to use pesto more. I often buy a jar, use it once and then forget about it.

  3. I love all these vegetarian recipes that people are posting. I've been a vegetarian my whole life and make the same things over and over. Love finding new fun recipes to try! Looks delish! Found you through #foodpornthursdays, so glad I did!

      Me too Mergen. I'm not a vegetarian but we don't eat a whole heap of meat so it's lovely to find new recipes. Im glad you like the look of this. You should also take a look at this one - http://lifeloving.co.uk/bean-stew/ this has also become one of my staples. I make it at the weekend and eat it during the week. It's better 'matured'.
