Sausage & Baked Beans Curry


This month I thought I’d share with you a couple of my budget friendly meals which featured tin beans as one of the main ingredients.

These are very quick, easy and economical but yet very delicious dishes and can easily be doubled or even tripled for a large group of people.

Baked beans don’t just taste great, but are nutritious too; naturally high in fibre, high in protein and low in fat, as well as contributing to 1 of your 5 a day.

1/2 – 1 tsp chilli powder

3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters

Method:

Add sausage pieces and cook for a further 5 minutes then add baked beans. Simmer for 10 minutes until the beans are fully warmed and the sausages are cooked and the potatoes are soft.

Enjoy!

Best serve with boiled white rice or roti, atchars and or sambals. Delicious with white buttered bread too.

Cook’s note: adding salt is optional as the baked beans as well as sausage contains salt.

Prepare the Tomato Bredie a day in advance and leave in the refrigerator. Vegetable bredie’s flavour enhances if it eaten the next day. Reheat and serve with boiled rice.

Buy tomatoes when in season and it’s slightly cheaper. Cut and liquidise, divide into portions, pour into freezer friendly ziplock bags or containers and freeze until needed.

Use tin tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes
