Ingredients

  • 6 plain pork sausages
  • olive oil, for frying
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 medium leeks, sliced, weighing about 250g (9 oz)
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced, weighing about 250g (9 oz)
  • 250ml (1 cup) white wine
  • 250ml (1 cup) chicken stock
  • 400g (14 oz) tin butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • parsley, roughly chopped for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Brown the sausages in a little oil for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and leek to the sausage pan and cook until softened.
  3. Add the carrots, wine, stock and butter beans then simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Notes

  • Alternatively, you can use 200g (7 oz) dried instead. You need to soak the beans for at least 12 hours (alternatively overnight) in plenty of cold water. Rinse and boil them for 30 minutes or until just soft, not mushy.
  • If you like spiced pork sausages, feel free to use them instead.
  • If leeks or carrots isn’t your cup of tea, experiment with other vegetables instead, e.g. broccoli, green beans, parsnips and sweet potato.
