Sausage, Sweet Potato and Butter Bean Cassoulet

Sausage, Sweet Potato and Butter Bean Cassoulet

This is a great recipe for batch cooking a whole lot of and freezing for lazy evenings! It is also one of those things that is perfect for an Autumn evening, proper comfort food… If I’m being naughty I have it with crusty bread and butter but it’s great and very filling just on its own!!

This recipe makes approx 4/6 portions…

You will need

  • Low Fat Sausages
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Pepper
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 tins Chopped Toms
  • 1 tin Butter Beans
  • fresh Herbs (Basil or Parsley)

Dice up the Onions, Peppers and Potatoes and squeeze the Sausage Meat from the skins into chunks.

Fry the sausage meat in a large pan  until nicely coloured and sealed.

Add the veg and cook for a few minutes. Then add the tins of tomatoes plus half a tin of water.

Simmer for around 15/20 mins, add salt, pepper, some balsamic and sweetener to taste.

You want to add the beans just for the last couple of minutes as they don’t need much cooking and you don’t want them to turn to mush!

This is the point where you would chill it and freeze if you were batch cooking for the freezer…

To serve I add lots of freshly chopped herbs and top with Parmesan.

Hope you enjoy it!
