Recipe idea – Smoked Sausage and Mixed Bean Cassoulet

6 November 2014


A yummy supper for midweek, this cassoulet uses store cupboard ingredients which can be served with crusty bread to mop up the sauce or, if you prefer, leftover rice or mashed potato.


Serves: 4-  Prep time:  10 minutes –   Cooking time:  10 minutes


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 360g pack jumbo frankfurters, sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 400g can mixed beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion for 3 minutes, add the sausage and fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, beans and tomato purée.
  2. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve with salad and crusty bread.

Cook’s tip
Try using a tin of baked beans for a more child friendly flavour.

Canned frankfurters are a good substitute and a useful store cupboard ingredient. Leftover cooked sausages work well too.

Extra flavour
Add herbs, BBQ sauce or chilli for extra flavour.
