Campfire stew

This is my version of the campfire stew. I personally don’t like the sausages cooked in the stew so I make that on the hob while I cook my sausages in the oven. This is always a family favourite and depending on what people fancy we either cook it with pasta or potatoes so it can be like a stew or a meaty minestrone!

serves 6 people

3 peppers (of your choice)

2 large onions

3 large carrots

2 sticks celery

2 tins tomatoes

1 large clove garlic

1 tbsp smoked paprika, tomato puree  and Worcestershire sauce

salt and pepper

2 sausages of your choice per person (check your syn values)

1 tin of baked beans, and another tin of beans of your choice (or what you have on hand)

  1. Under the grill on high cook your whole peppers turning every so often to get a slight char on them. Remove and cool.
  2. Meanwhile chop up your onions and cook on a low heat with a pinch of salt and pepper to cook  until softened.
  3. While your onions are softening chop up your carrot, celery and pepper (I prefer mine in smaller thumbnail size pieces) and add to the pot.
  4. When your celery softens a little add your garlic and tomato puree and stir until fragrant.
  5. Add in all of your liquid ingredients including the beans and paprika, give it a stir and let it simmer while you cook your sausages in a pan or pot (about 15 minutes).

Serve in a bowl with the sausages chopped up, like I said this works well with pasta or potatoes or purely on its own although if I don’t have anything with it I tend to add a handful of red lentils while it’s cooking to help thicken it a little! 

I hope you guys give this a try and I would love for you to comment and like and let me know if you try my recipe or if there are any tweaks you would personally make!
