Method

  1. Heat oil in a large pan and fry the onion, garlic, carrot and leek until soft but not coloured. Add the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes, butter beans, flageolet beans, cider, stock and thyme and simmer for 15-20 mins until the stew has thickened and the veg are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, if you’re adding sausages to any portion, snip each sausage into 3-4 chunks. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and brown the chunks for 5 mins, then stir in appropriate portions of the stew and gently simmer for the remaining cooking time. Serve with the mash.

This was OK, served with jackets rather than mash. Added Quorn sausages which worked well.

Made the stew and the mash and it was delicious. Tasted even better the next day with the leftovers.. particularly like the taste from the cider but I also shoved in some more garlic. Lovely.

This was delicious though the cheese left a bit of a coating on your teeth - will probably make it with plain mashed potato or even brown rice next time.

A very nice meal. I used cannellini beans instead of butter beans as already had a tin in the cupboard and I put chives in the mash instead of parsley as I hate parsley with a vengeance!

Tried this last night and it was delicious! couldn't find flageolet beans so used borlotti instead. I added cooked turkey sausages and served with jacket spuds, yummy!!
