Serves: 4-6
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutes


400g (14oz) Lincolnshire sausages
1 tsp oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp mild chilli powder
2 tsp ground turmeric
225g (8oz) easy cook brown rice
450ml (¾pt) pork stock
400g (14oz) can chopped tomatoes
Ground black pepper
3 whole cloves
5 spring onions, chopped (reserve some green tips for garnish)
½ red pepper, deseeded and chopped
100g (4oz) button mushrooms, quartered
1 courgette, halved lengthways, then sliced diagonally


1 Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the sausages over a medium heat until browned. Remove from the pan and keep to one side. When cool enough to handle, cut each sausage in half.

2 Meanwhile, add the onion, garlic, chilli powder, turmeric and rice to the pan and cook until the rice is opaque. Add the stock, chopped tomatoes and pepper. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

3 Add the sausages and the remaining ingredients and continue to cook, uncovered, for a further 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

4 Sprinkle with the green tops of the spring onions before serving.
