  2. Add the sausages and fry the sausages for 5 minutes, then stir in the garlic, spices and dried thyme and continue cooking for 1 – 2 mins or until the aromas are released.

  3. Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to remove any residue stuck to the pan. Add the tinned tomatoes, and fresh thyme and bring to a simmer. Crumble in the stock cube and stir in.

  4. Cook for 40 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook for a further five minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs, season with black pepper and serve.

Wow this was good. Followed pretty much to the letter apart from the beans, added a tin of mixed ones which worked very well. Also i forgot to brown the sausages as suggested elsewhere, wouldn't have been an issue had i not cut the sausages into three bits, hence they sort of fell apart. Cooked in a Dutch Oven in the fire-pit, smelled superb throughout. Leaned from my mistakes and next time this will be even better than my first attempt. BROWN THE BANGERS WITH THE ONIONS unless you like pasty white sausages.

One of my favourites. Sausages really do need browning beforehand. 2 tins of tomatoes does make it a bit thin initially but taking time to reduce it down lets the sausages cook thoroughly. I always use a can of hot and spicy mixed beans and also add some chilli powder/flakes to the mix.

This is delicious, we prefer a thicker sauce so add 1 1/2 tin of tomatoes. Prefer it with pinto or borlotti beans.

Tasty, easy way to make a delicious meal out of sausages. I swapped the aduki beans for red kidney beans because that what was in the cupboard and the result was lovely.

Lovely dinner. Kids thought it a little spicy but ate most of it. Didn't use red wine. Used cannellini beans instead of aduki. Served with mash. One to repeat.

Very nice dish! I've made it as per the original recipe but also adapted it to use veggie sausages (and no chorizo) for a vegetarian option.

Great recipe, but as per other comments, definitely brown the sausages first. I also added a teaspoon of honey as initially the overall taste was a little bitter.

Delicious! I really enjoyed this recipe. I browned the sausages first as had a smaller pot and didn't use the wine, I also substitued butter beans - all in all, quick, easy and full of flavour!
