Herby Sausages with Butter Bean Mash

A comforting, hearty meal for two with herby sausages and butter bean mash. Just a few ingredients make up this midweek meal that takes just 10 minutes prep.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 20 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 2


    •   3 tbsp olive oil
    •   4 pork & herb sausages
    •   8 spring onions, finely sliced
    •   2 x 400g cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
    •   1 fat garlic clove, finely grated
    •   1 large lemon, zested and juiced
    •   wilted greens, to serve


  1. Heat grill to high. Brush 1 tbsp oil over the sausages, and grill on a tray for 20 mins, turning regularly.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the rest of the oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Add most of the spring onion and cook for 5 mins until softened. Add the beans, garlic, and lemon zest and juice, cook for a few mins more, then gently mash with a potato masher to get a thick, creamy consistency. Season and cook for 5 mins more until warmed through. Scatter over the remaining spring onion and serve with the sausages and wilted greens.
