spanish casserole

spanish casseroleThis is another recipe from the Quorn kitchen, although we’re not that keen on Quorn sausages & ususally use Cauldron or Tesco’s instead. It really is very tasty & everyone loves it.  I was very pleased when I worked out how to make it in the slow cooker too! Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • approx 6 of your favourite sausages
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 100g sweetcorn
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder
  • 100ml apple juice (or sherry)
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 400g can of cannellini beans, drained
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

to serve

  • mashed potatoes

Method 1

  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sausages for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool then slice diagonally into 5 pieces.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir in the sweetcorn, paprika and chilli powder and cook for a few more minutes before adding the sherry or apple juice.
  4. Pour in the tomatoes, beans and stock and return the Sausages to the pan. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes before sprinkling with parsley.

Method 2 (slow cooker)

  1. the night before,  all the veg & put in the slow cooker with the tomatoes, beans, sweetcorn, apple juice, spices & stock powder in the slow cooker on low
  2. in the morning, fry the sausage, slice & add to the slow cooker

  1. This was really tasty. I would advise using a fairly large pan to make sure there is plenty stirring room.I think it would work fine without the sausages if you don't have any or don't like them.If you don't like spicy then I would also cut down on the chilli powder. My dcs ate it happily though and the youngest is 6 so it isn't too fiery. A definite hit in this household.Thanks bessie!
