It's the perfect time of year for rich stews, You really feel like you've had a good meal when you sit down to stew, It's tasty, filling and utterly comforting. My latest stew is this veggie sausage, mushroom and bean stew which was fabulous.

Sometimes I make stew in my slow cooker, but I'm not always organised enough to use my slow cooker and have a meal on the table in time for dinner. I always have 101 things to do and rarely think about dinner until the afternoon or on the way home from work in the evening, so I usually make stews and casseroles on the cooker top in a cast iron casserole.

Go on, tell me I need to be more organised. I know it, I just don't seem to be able to do anything about it. I am always so busy. If you have any tips for getting organised in the new year, do share them with me.

This homemade stew is rich with the sweet flavour of tomato and has a bit of warmth and spice from ground cumin and smoked paprika. You could add some chilli powder for a bit of a kick too. I knew my wee boy would prefer it without the chilli, so I left it out.

The stew has generous slices of well cooked veggie sausages (I use Linda McCartney sausages which are vegan), which I fried until brown and crisp, then sliced and adding into the stew along with mushrooms and cannellini beans.

I served my stew on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes with peas, which are a family favourite, on the side.

We all finished our meals with smiles.

  4. I've never tried veggie sausage. It sounds like a nice alternative to regular. As for being organized, when I worked outside the home, I spent time on Sundays planning meals for the week and making a grocery list to go with it. It's a lot of work up front, but so worth it!

  5. sounds lovely - I know the feeling of 101 things to do - the main motivation I have to cook ahead is knowing that it will be time for dinner when I get home and I wont have he energy to rush and will edn up with hummus and crackers unless I get oganised

    1. I know that feeling Johanna. I don't think I could organise dinner in the morning though. It's a big enough task getting us all up and out the door in time, especially on dark winter mornings.
