This vegetarian sausage cassoulet is a warming one-pot meal that’s super easy to make and packed with flavour. It’s quick, hearty and delicious.
- 1 onions
- 1 carrot
- 1 punnet chestnut mushrooms
- 2 garlic cloves
- 6 Linda McCartney Sausages
- 1 can of cannellini beans
- 1 pot of wild mushroom sauce
- 1 sachet of tomato puree
- Dried Thyme
- 1 bag of parsley
- 50 grams of panko breadcrumbs
- 300 ml water
1Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Trim the carrot, then quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into small pieces. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
2Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, high sided pan or casserole pot over high heat. Once hot, add the sausages and cook until browned all over, 5-6 mins. (You may need to do this in batches). Add a little more oil if the sausages start to stick. Transfer to a plate. While the sausages are cooking, drain and rinse the cannellIni beans.
3Add a drizzle of oil to the now empty pan and add the onion and carrot. Cook, stirring, until softened and turning golden, 5-6 mins. Add the mushrooms and cook until browned, 3-4 mins. Add the wild mushroom paste, tomato puree, thyme, water (see ingredients for amounts), half the garlic and the cannellini beans. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer with a lid on for 10 mins. Stir once or twice in this time to ensure it doesn’t stick.
4Once the mixture has cooked for 10 mins, remove the lid from the pan, return the sausages to the cassoulet and simmer until the mixture has thickened, a further 10 mins. Stir a couple of times.
5Meanwhile, roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan over medium to high heat and add the breadcrumbs with the remaining garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until golden brown and crispy, 3-4 mins. Once browned, transfer to a bowl and stir through half the parsley.
6Stir the remaining parsley through the cassoulet and divide it between bowls. Scatter over the crispy breadcrumbs. Enjoy!
