Tuscan Bean Stew with Sausages
A quick and easy Tuscan bean stew made with Italian sausages, cannellini beans, tomato, sage, and garlic. It's hearty, filling and just what you need to warm yourself up on a chilly evening.
Servings: 4 people
Add the olive oil to a large pot on a medium/low heat. Peel the garlic cloves but keep whole and add them to the pot with the sage leaves.
When the garlic starts to take on some colour add the beans with 6 tbsp of their cooking liquid and the passata (pureed tomatoes).
Let the beans simmer for around 10 minutes. Cut each sausage into three then add them to the beans.
Season with a salt and pepper and continue to simmer the bean stew gently until the sausages are cooked through (around 15-20 minutes). Stir it every so often but be careful not to mash up the beans.
Once ready, remove the garlic cloves and serve. Serve with salad and crusty bread.
Please note the recipe was tested and developed using metric measurements all imperial measurements are approximate.
