Bangers & beans in a pan
- vegetable-oil - 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- sausage - 454g packet good quality sausage each sausage chopped into three
- onion - 1 small onion, chopped
- carrot - 3 carrots, chopped into thick slices
- celery - 4 celery sticks, washed, if gritty, and sliced into chunks (finely chop the leaves if there are any)
- mixed-pulses - 2 x 410g cans mixed pulses (or other beans), drained and rinsed under the cold tap
- vegetable-stock - 400ml hot chicken or vegetable stock
- dijon-mustard - 1-2 tbsp Dijon mustard (or 2 tsp ready-made English mustard), depending on how fiery you want it
- parsley - a small handful of fresh parsley, chopped
- crusty-bread - crusty bread, to serve
- Cook the sausages. Heat the oil over a high-ish heat in a wide shallow pan that has a lid. Put the chopped sausages into the pan and sizzle for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they're browned on all sides.
- Do the veg and beans. Throw in the onion, carrots and celery (not the leaves) and cook for 5 minutes until the onion looks see-through. Tip in the beans, give a good stir, then pour in the stock and bring to the boil, stirring. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the carrots are tender.
- Finish the dish. Stir in the mustard and parsley with any chopped celery leaves, then season to taste with salt and pepper. (The bangers and beans may now be frozen - whole or as single portions - for up to two months.) Serve hot, with chunks of crusty bread to mop up the sauce.
