For Bonfire Night here's a warming recipe that you can leave in the oven while you enjoy the fireworks. Sausages aren’t something that shouldn’t be an everyday food as high consumption of processed meat is known to contribute to cancer. However, you can still enjoy them as an occasional treat with this recipe packed with vegetables and pulses. Serves 4.
6 good quality sausages (halved)
2 large onions cut into wedges
2 sweet potatoes in 2cm cubes
2 peppers (red/yellow/orange) in 2cm chunks
4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
Tin of chickpeas or cannellini beans (drained)
Tin of chopped tomatoes
Herbs or spices to taste (rosemary, thyme and sage work well or try a finely chopped red chilli)
Add any other veggies you fancy (courgette, aubergine, squash, leeks, kale etc)
Mix all the ingredients in a large roasting tin and bake (200oC) for around an hour.
Which will give you plenty of time for waving a sparkler in the cold.
