“The clue’s in the title with this one – it’s not the prettiest recipe in the world, but boy is it comforting and super-delicious. Let the recipe flex to what you’ve got in the house – check out the easy swaps below for ideas. ”
- 600 g ripe mixed-colour cherry tomatoes
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 200 g rosemary focaccia
- 1 x 660 g jar of white beans
- 12 higher-welfare chipolatas
- Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.
- Halve the cherry tomatoes, peel and finely slice the garlic, and tear the bread into bite-sized chunks.
- Place it all in a 30cm x 35cm roasting tray, pour in the beans and their juice, drizzle with 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and red wine vinegar, add a splash of water, and mix it all together.
- Quickly pinch and twist each chipolata in the middle to make it into two mini ones, then randomly dot them around your bake, lightly pressing them into the beans and tomatoes.
- Roast for 45 minutes, or until everything is golden, bubbling and delicious.
– I’ve used chipolatas but you could use Cumberland or even veggie sausages, no problem.
– Jarred white beans are delicious, but you can swap in any type of bean you’ve got in the cupboard, jarred or tinned, or even lentils.
– No fresh tomatoes? Don’t worry, chuck in some tinned tomatoes or passata instead. It’s all good.
