I absolutely love making delicious meals for my family. Using my slow cooker is a convenient way of having a delicious dinner ready on time every day without slaving over a hot oven all day. Also, I can find 10 minutes in the morning and have a wonderful meal by the end of the day. This lovely sausage cassoulet was prepared in my slow cooker, was tasty and super simple too!
- Large onion
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 1 tin chickpeas
- 6 sausages
- 30 g tomato puree
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp mild chilli powder
- 1 tsp medium curry powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 tsp oregano
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
Brown the sausages in a pan. Fry them lightly for a couple of minutes until each side is brown.
Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker.
Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours.
This is what the slow cooker sausage cassoulet looks like at the beginning:
Once I had put this sausage cassoulet together then I turned it on low for around 8 hours. The first 30 minutes I cooked it on high (as per the instructions on my particular slow cooker). In the end, I had a look and I didn’t need to add any cornflour to thicken it up – it was already perfect!
This is what the sausage cassoulet looks like once it is cooked:
Yes, I know… Not the prettiest photo of a sausage cassoulet ever! Still – it tasted great!
We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner. We’ve had it quite a few times now. I typically serve it either with mashed potato or on its own. It is a really filling dinner and if you get super high-quality sausages it needn’t be too unhealthy either.
I love the flavours of this sausage cassoulet because they really compliment each other. The slow cooking really helps the flavours to meld together and as a result, it has a smoky flavour to it. I’m a real fan of slow cooker dinners. They are convenient, often cheap and you can use all sorts of cuts of meat to save money too if you choose.
