Smokin’ Cowboy Beans Recipe
Original recipe by Joe Wicks, adapted by Our Whimsical World
Serves 2

• 1tbsp olive oil
• 4 meat-free sausages (we used Cauldron Lincolnshire Sausages)
• 400g can chopped tomatoes
• 2tbsp tomato puree
• 2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
• 2tsp smoked paprika
• 1tsp ground cumin
• 1tbsp honey
• 1tbsp mustard (we used Dijon)
• 1 can Pinto beans, drained
• 1 can Black beans, drained
• salt & pepper to taste
• fresh coriander to garnish

An easy tasty dish using store cupboard ingredients

1) Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the sausages and fry for 6-8 minutes, or until browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside until later.
2) In the now empty saucepan, add the tomato puree and cook out for a minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, cumin, honey and mustard. Add a splash of water, bring to the boil & simmer for 5 minutes.
3) Meanwhile, chop the cooked meat-free sausages in to bite size pieces. Once the tomato sauce has been simmering for 5 minutes, add the sausage pieces and beans to the pan and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
4) Season to taste, then serve topped with fresh coriander.

Smokin’ Cowboy Beans – vegetarian style!

In the original recipe, Joe Wicks recommends topping with a poached egg, however I prefer freshly baked bread to soak up any leftover smokin’ juices! It is also perfectly mashable for little ones so I was able to give it to our 7 month old (who devoured it)!
