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.

This meal is simple to make and really good! Served with a rustic sourdough bread and salad. Will definitely make it again and again.

I made this for 3 people and there was 'just' enough based on these measurements. I also preferred it with a bit more cumin - too bland otherwise.

really good-but try using sausage meat instead of actual sausages!saves having the messy job of squeezing them out and its cheaper!

ummmmm really like this! One pots are alway good for the washer uper! Will try the Italian version next time. Oh I added a pinch of cayenne pepper for a kick!

lovely! i cooked the meatballs in a frying pan and then added them to the rice towards the end. i also used some homemade chicken stock instead of the veg stock, which i heated first in another pan - so ended up using three pans rather than one... nevermind! i'm not very good at cooking rice so it was more like a risotto, but still very tasty.

My family loved this, i took note of the advise from above & made it more like a rissoto. I did add some chilli, it was very nice, never thought of using sausage's like that before.

This has been one of my many favourites from the Good Food Magazine. I make it with gluten-free sausages which I buy from my local butcher in Market Lavington, Wiltshire.

I can't believe I've never used sausages as meatballs before. What a great find this recipe is, definately one of our family favourites now, and so cheap and easy to make.

I made the pasta variation and it was very good. Sausages make great meatballs!

This was really yummy. Used chicken stock instead of veg stock and reduced the volume of liquid. Also added a teaspoon of chilli flakes for an added kick.

Really nice, but I used less liquid so more of a stew than a soup. Reckon it would be really nice with chicken instead too.
