One pot sausage stew

Simple meals don’t have to be boring

I have been on a mission to make simple and tasty meals. I aim to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight. We all struggle to make healthy and delicious meals while keeping on top of everything else in life. So this recipe is designed to be healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can cook this meal on a single pot, and the preparation takes no more than 20 minutes and is portioned to feed four adults.

Scraping the bottom of the freezer

It has been a crazy week; I’ve been bouncing around all over the place with no time to sort out my life. After a frantic week with no desire to eat another portion of chilli and even less desire to go shopping, it was time to get creative. I knew there would be treasure hiding in the kitchen; I just had to find it. A quick rummage around in the freezer, I discovered a pack of pork sausages that would be a perfect dinner after some thawing. Another rummage around the fridge and the cupboards, and I had the garlic, onion, barbeque sauce and tomatoes. 

Simple but tasty

With my ingredients sorted in the morning, I knew I had a leisurely evening to get dinner made and on the table. With less than 10 minutes of chopping and preparation, I had dinner underway and a chance to sit down and enjoy some time talking with Jay. A perfect end to a busy week.
