One-pan smoky beans & sausage meatballs


For when you go camping, this recipe can be cooked quickly in one pan using mostly storecupbo­ard ingredient­s and is also easily scaled up. If you don’t fancy cooking at camp, it can just as easily be made at home and brought along in the pan for the easiest hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner. Roll the sausages into balls to make them stretch further, or for more of a casserole feel, you can leave them whole.

2 tbsp sun lower oil

1 onion, inely chopped

2 garlic cloves, inely chopped 2 tbsp fajita spice mix (see tip, right) 1 tbsp vinegar (any you have) 400g can chopped tomatoes

to serve (optional)

1 Squeeze the sausagemea­t from one of the sausages, then roll into four balls. Repeat with the rest of the sausages. Heat half the oil in a flameproof casserole, shallow saucepan or deep frying pan over a medium heat and fry the sausage balls for about 8 mins, stirring occasional­ly until browned all over.

2 Scatter in the onion, drizzle in the remaining oil and cook for 5 mins until the onions are golden. Add the garlic and cook for 2 mins more. Scatter in 1 tbsp sugar and the fajita spice mix, cooking for a minute or two until the mixture has thickened. Splash in the vinegar, tip in the tomatoes and a can of water, then add the beans. Season, stir, bring to a simmer and bubble gently for 15-20 mins until the sauce is thick and rich. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly. Can be prepared up to three days ahead, then cooled completely and chilled for up to three days or frozen for three months. Defrost completely in the fridge overnight and reheat in a pan until piping hot. Scatter with parsley or coriander and serve with crusty bread or jacket potatoes, if you like.
