Recently, here in the UK we've had a lot of rain in fact in some areas it has caused flooding and there are still flood alerts in place! My thoughts are with all those affected.

With this sort of weather this recipe suggestion offers a comforting and hearty one-pot sausage stew with chorizo, smoked paprika and plenty of vegetables ...

Serves 4 - 6
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 medium sticks celery, finely chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 fat garlic cloves, chopped
6 cooking chorizo sausages (about 400g)
6 pork sausages (about 400g)
1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp. dried thyme
125ml white wine
2 x 400g tins cherry tomatoes or chopped tomatoes
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 chicken stock cube
1 x 400g tin aduki beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch chives (optional)

1. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the celery and peppers and cook for a further 5 minutes.
2. Add the sausages and fry the sausages for 5 minutes, then stir in the garlic, spices and dried thyme and continue cooking for 1 2 minutes or until the aromas are released.
3. Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to remove any residue stuck to the pan. Add the tinned tomatoes, and fresh thyme and bring to a simmer. Crumble in the stock cube and stir in.
4. Cook for 40 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook for a further five minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs, season with black pepper and serve.

This recipe can be adapted to a vegetarian meal ... using vegetarian sausages and vegetarian bacon in place of the chorizo.
If you are allergic to wine (or do not drink it) it can be omitted from the recipe.

Did you know - the aduki bean is a tiny, reddish-brown bean with a cream coloured seam and sweet, nutty flavour. Aduki beans are regarded as the king of beans in Japan and are prized for their health-giving properties: reputedly benefitting the liver and the kidneys.

For those readers who live in warmer climates, I offer an alternative recipe suggestion! It's Salad Aveyronnaise, a little bit of France on your table; see more details here
