This week I have been batch cooking a few different meals, so that when the baby arrives there are dinners in the freezer for Amelia…..even if my husband and I live on take-away for the initial few weeks, or at least after my mum goes home, I know I have something decent for Amelia to eat!
This Bean and Sausage hot-pot is really filling and moorish, as well as being really quick and tasty. It’s taken from my Annabel Karmel Quick & Easy Toddler Recipes book.
I have altered the recipe below by adding an extra tin of mixed beans,an extra onion,clove of garlic, a whole bottle of Passata and some extra ketchup and worcestershire sauce to make a little extra to freeze. With the extra ingredients I had enough for two adult dinners, one toddler and 6 portions to freeze.
•2 tsp oil
•1 onion,finely chopped
•1 garlic clove,crushed
•1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
•1/2 tsp brown sugar
•3 tbsp ketchup
•1 tsp thyme
•1 x 400g can haricot beans,drained
•6 good quality cooked sausages
1)Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and cook for 5 mum sites,then add the garlic and fry fir 30 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cooked sausages and bring to the boil,then summer for 5 minutes.
2)Slice each sausage into three, add them to the saucepan and summer everything together for 5 minutes.
3)Serve with mash and peas
