Spicy Butter Bean and Vegan Sausage Casserole

Spicy Butter Bean and Vegan Sausage Casserole

This is such a simple recipe but it’s one that I turn to time and time again. I love a good casserole and this one is no exception. The delicious buttery taste from the beans and the texture from the sausages make for a wonderful combination. Add in the delicate spicing and you have a dish that is truly wonderful.

1 medium red onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic

1 tablespoon of olive oil

100g of mushrooms, roughly chopped or sliced

1 teaspoon of garam masala

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 teaspoon of black onion seeds

1 green chilli (or chilli to taste)

1 vegetable stock cube

1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes

1 400g tin of butter beans, rinsed and drained

200ml of water

3 Vegan Sausages (own made or shop bought), chopped into bite size pieces


1 In a frying pan, add the oil and fry the onions until slightly softened.

2 Add the garlic and mushrooms and continue to fry on a medium heat until the mushrooms have released some of their water but still have texture.

3 Add the tomatoes, water and stock cube. Stir well and bring to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes.

4 Add the garam masala, cumin, onion seeds and chilli and continue to simmer for a further 2 minutes.

5 Add the butter beans and sausage pieces, stir well, simmer for a few minutes until the butter beans and sausages are cooked through and serve.


Suitable for freezing.


I find Tofurky Sausages the best for this dish, as they hold their texture and have a wonderful bite.

You could substitute the sausages for a different alternative or your own home made sausages.
