Servings: 2 people


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 plant-based sausages e.g. Richmond sausages
  • 1 white onion thinly sliced
  • 1 winter squash cubed
  • 2 large carrots sliced
  • 2 sticks celery sliced
  • 1 red pepper de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 4 portobello mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch root ginger grated
  • 400 grams tinned tomatoes
  • 400 millilitres vegetable stock
  • grams cannellini beans drained weight
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp crushed chilli flakes adjusted for your own heat tolerance
  • salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 200C / 400F / gas mark 6.
  • Heat the olive oil in an oven proof casserole dish on a medium-high heat and add the sausages. Cook the sausages for 5 minutes, turning regularly just until their skins have begun to brown and go crisp.
  • Add the onion to the casserole dish with a big pinch of salt and cook until the onions have softened and begun to go translucent (5-10 minutes).
  • Add the remaining veggies to the casserole dish and cook for another 5 - 10 minutes or until they have a little colour around the edges and have softened slightly.
  • Next add the garlic and ginger to the casserole dish and cook for just a few moments until their fragrance begins to come out.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and stir well to combine.
  • Place a lid on top of the casserole dish and pop into the centre of the oven to cook for 1 hour 15 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are soft.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning before serving.


I use a casserole dish which can be used both on the hob and in my oven. If your casserole dish cannot be placed directly on to heat (e.g. on the hob), use a large saucepan for steps 2-6 and place into the casserole dish just before it goes in the oven.
