AKA autumn in a bowl. Yesterday the weather was awful – dark skies, endless rain, blustery winds – so after the wettest dog walk ever we ate this for dinner and all felt a lot better. If that wasn’t enough, my daughter ate the kale without question. SHE ATE KALE!!! Massive tick on the parenting ticky boxy list there. Serves 3.
1 large red onion
1 tbsp olive oil
6 pork sausages
3 crushed garlic cloves
1 tsp smoked paprika
400g tin beans (I used butter beans)
400g tin tomatoes
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp dried thyme
200g chopped kale
Salt & Pepper
- Quarter and finely slice the onion, gently fry in the olive oil in a large pan until softened (about 5 minutes).
- Cut each sausage into 4-5 chunks, add them into the pan and continue to cook for another 5 minutes or so until browned.
- Add in the garlic and smoked paprika, mix well, then add in the drained and rinsed beans of your choice, tomatoes and an additional tin full of water.
- Break down the tomatoes with whatever implement you are using, fling in the Worcestershire sauce and thyme, season well, mix and leave to simmer for 20 minutes or so.
- Stir in the kale (remove any chunky stalk bits first), cook for a further 5 minutes.
- Serve with crusty bread to mop up the sauce.
