Meat Free Sausage and Bean Casserole
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.
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
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)
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.
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.
