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.

Mine was definately more of a risotto as i added not much stock. It was a nice easy quick dinner when there's nothing in the fridge!

recipe was tasty, wasnt really a soup, turned out more like risotto but was nice alternative for sausages!

Went down an absolute treat with my flatmates! A great student/cheap but delicious and filling meal! Added a bit less water than stated so it wasn't too much of a soup! Probably needs a bit more seasoning.

I used toulouse sausages for extra garlickyness. I did find it took longer to cook the rice than the specified 10mins but this wasnt a problem. All in all it was lovely and I will make it again.

This is utterly delicious and equally favoured by fussy middle-aged men and children! When in a rush I have cooked the sausages whole and then chopped them to dispense with the fiddling about. It works equally well. I have also used pork mince which also works a treat. I often add extras: peas, diced carrot, broccoli spears etc to get this up t a 5-a-day meal. When weight-watching use spray oil and reduced fat sausages or lean minced pork.

Well I made this as I said I would above. Instead of making the sausages into meatballs I just cooked them cut them on half and added to the stew. I bought some lovely 'Jamie Oliver Italian sausages' from Asda. (The bees knees i can tell you). This was so easy yet so delicious.

I've just prepared this, I've changed it slightly as in adding broccoli, and par boiled Brussel sprouts as I have both to use up. As some others have done I added extra cumin and coriander and some cayenne pepper for a bit of a kick. I'm going to cook the sausages separately then and them to the stew then heat through while boiling up some potatoes.

I added chopped red chilli and also made this a two-pot meal by frying the sausage separately.
Very tasty.

Really tasty and fairly quick and easy to make. My family liked it too including children.
I baked the meatballs in the oven on a high heat while I cooked the rest of it and added them at the end, more washing up but faster cooking time!
I halved the cumin and coriander as I thought it sounded a bit heavy on the spice, but added 1 tsp of paprika for colour.
I also added 1/2 tsp of sugar, will add a whole one next time as I thought it was still a bit sharp from the tomatoes.

Will definitely make again.

Very nice. I used some more sausages, but that was really not necessary
