Method

  1. Split the sausage skins, squeeze out the meat, then roll it into small meatballs about the size of a large olive. Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan, then brown the meatballs well on all sides until cooked – you might need to do this in batches. Set the meatballs aside.
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan. Soften for 5 mins, stir in the spices and rice, then cook for another min. Pour in the stock and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any sausagey bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 10 mins until the rice is just cooked, then stir in the meatballs with some seasoning. Ladle into bowls, scatter with coriander and serve with crusty bread.

Love this recipe! Most times I have followed the recipe exactly and it turns out great, although I do add a little extra water to stop it becoming more like a risotto

I didn't have any long grain rice so I used arborio (risotto) rice instead. Still worked out well and even better, froze well too. I defrosted one serving overnight in the fridge and heated in microwave at work. Because there is a lot of liquid in the dish, it doesn't dry out when reheated so definitely a winner for batch cook/freeze for work lunches.

Very nice and flavourful. We added some steamed broccoli at the end and added spices to the sausagemeat.

Very tasty, quick and easy to prepare. My two-year old has just devoured two helpings! A great family midweek dinner.

Lovely flavour. Eldest daughter would've preferred pasta but I really liked the stew/soupy consistency.

I love this recipe and we make it a lot as a family. I have also made it while camping on a single burner gas camping stove, delicious and warming after a long day walking.

very tasty. I also added less stock than the recipe required. I then also added some paprika, and I had some chorizo in the fridge too so I added that and it tasted great! Will certainly be making again

Really enjoyed this. Tasty and easy to make. Perfect for the kids too. Think I'd add some dried chilli flakes next time for hubby and I. Great for an autumn/ winter evening.

Loved this dish, though I would go lighter on the cumin the next time and add a bit of chilli or black pepper.

I had some sage and rosemary in so decided to use those instead and cooked the tomato sauce for about 45 minutes (and added red wine and balsamic vinegar) to make it lovely and rich. I also mixed some chopped rosemary in with the meatballs. We like lots of vegetables, so also added mushrooms, courgettes and little chunks of butternut squash. We really enjoyed this recipe, and will make it again. I'll definitely try it with cumin, and I think it would be nice with smoked paprika and cayenne pepper too. There are lots of ways that it could be adapted to fit what's in the cupboard/fridge.

Fab recipe, so easy and quick!! Great to stick in the freezer as well. I added 200g of rice, this made it a much better consistency. Added a bit of chilli powder too to add a little kick.

I used 4 (left over from a BBQ) beef burgers (approx 450g) made into balls for this and brown basmati rice not long grain rice but followed everything else to the letter. It was still absolutely gorgeous.

Because of the brown basmati rice taking ages to cook, I actually ended up with a really good consistency to the sauce. I would recommend using brown basmati.

I served it with some roasted green pepper, courgettes and boiled broccoli. Delicious. Will be looking forwards to my left overs!

Nice enough, but I added chili flakes because I thought it was too bland
