  • 4-6 good-quality sausages
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Olive oil

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • ½ onion, finely chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp each ground cumin and coriander
  • 140g long grain rice
  • 850ml vegetable stock
  • 400g can chopped tomato
  • ½ small bunch coriander, leaves picked


  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.

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.
