Real vegetarian food, served in an imaginary world...

Friday 2 September 2016


I love having fruit and veg 'on tap' in the garden, but I must admit that sometimes there is almost more produce than I know what to do with. We have a glut of courgettes and tomatoes at the moment. I thought that this might be a good way to use them.


6 vegetarian sausages, defrosted if frozen
1 red pepper, coarsely chopped
1 red onion, chopped into chunks
6 small tomatoes, halved
½ courgette, sliced
1 large tin chopped tomatoes
1tbsp tomato puree
¼tsp caster sugar
1tbsp olive oil
1 garlic bread baguette

mixed fresh herbs of choice
spices to suit

Heat oil and cook sausages. 
Then remove them from the pan and chop each into about three or four slices on the diagonal.
In the same pan, cook the onion and pepper for a couple of minutes. Then add the courgette and tomatoes. 
When all have softened, pour in the chopped tomatoes and return the sausages to the pan.
Then add the herbs and spices. I used fresh coriander and cumin with some ground paprika.
Add the tomato puree and the caster sugar. Season and taste. Adjust any of the above if necessary.

When ready to eat
Heat the oven to Gas 7
Make sure that everything in the pan is hot. Then transfer to a baking dish.
Cover with slices of the garlic bread.

Place in oven for about 10-12 minutes until bread is cooked.
