Sausage and Bean One-Pot

26 Jan

I tried this recipe from BBC Good Food the other day. It’s really yummy, and quick and easy to make, and it’s a one-pot which means less washing up – score! 

This recipe is meant to serve 4, but I halved it for two and it served us for one and a half meals (e.g. three portions!).

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 8 good-quality pork sausages (Toulouse or Sicilian varieties work well)
  • 2 carrots , halved lengthways and sliced
  • 2 Onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 x 410g cans mixed beans in water, rinsed and drained
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Sizzle the sausages for about 6 mins, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides, then remove to a plate. Tip the carrots and onions into the pan, then cook for 8 mins, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft. Add the vinegar to the pan, then stir in the drained beans. Pour over the stock, nestle the sausages in with the beans, then simmer everything for 10 mins.


(Can we just take a moment to admire my deliciously lurid wipe-clean table cloth which I got for £1? Apparently it doesn’t like being wiped with kitchen cleaner, because about an hour after this photo was taken it became a whole lot less lurid, and more of a purple and white swirly mess).

2. Scatter in the frozen peas, cook for 2 mins more until heated through, then take off the heat and stir in the mustard. Season to taste. Serve scooped straight from the pan.
