A Vegetarian Spanish Sausage & Bean Medley

image

I had this packet of mini vegetarian cocktail sausages sitting in my freezer collecting ice, that I had forgotten about. So when I saw the other ingredients I had to work with I thought the sausages would make the perfect satisfying addition.

I remember having seen a Spanish recipe for sausage and white bean casserole a while ago and my mind took my fingers and started to work on my very own version. A very satisfying and warming meal, no need for extra carbs such as bread or pasta. An immense dish with Mediterranean flavours that are always a winner for me! The spinach lifts the recipe at the end and the overall result is a feast for the eyes. Definitely a recipe I will be making again and again!

I really hope you enjoy it, Much love D x

  1. I tried being a vegetarian once and it didn’t agree with me long term but always try and have at least 1 vegetarian meal a week. will have to give this one a try as looks like its full of lovely stuff. Nice recipe!

  2. The vegetarian choices available today is nothing short of astounding. I “went” vegetarian about 20 years ago and it was nothing like today. This recipe sounds great, Dimple, and a great way to take advantage of today’s options.
