Herby Bean Casserole
Member Name: evelyndunton
Advantages: Very easy, inexpensive and nutritious
Healthy Wholesome, filling and cheap!
This is a lovely filling and warming very easy to make casserole that we have on a regular basis. I use various beans but usually add a tin of kidney beans as well. The sugar may seem a strange addition but it seems to bring out the flavour of the tomatoes. If you want to serve it as a vegetarian dish just leave out the sausages!
Another good thing about this dish is that the beans count towards your 5-a-day fruit and veg!
Serves 4, preparation time 5 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes.
1 Large onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic crushed
1 chilli (more if you dare) or chilli sauce (optional)
3 x420g cans of mixed beans
2 x 420g cans of chopped tomatoes
large pinch of mixed herbs
Olive oil for frying
(A note about Salt - we don't use salt in our house but if you are used to taking salt you may wish to add some, but try without first as it is better for you without added salt!)
Cook the sausages under the grill and set aside.
In a large pan lightly fry the onion and garlic and fresh chilli (if using) in a little olive oil. Drain and wash the beans and then add to the onion and garlic along with the chopped tomatoes, season with the herbs, and black pepper add the sugar and chilli sauce (if using) then bring to the boil and gently simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sausages and heat through.
Serve with crusty warm bread and enjoy!
Summary: Healthy filling meal
