Bandwagon Banger Casserole, Quick Vegan Sausage Casserole Recipe

Updated: Nov 3, 2019

Back in the day, even pre veggie, I used to make a banging banger casserole. I fell out of the habit of making it as up until recently I never really found a vegan sausage that was worth the effort! Over the last few months the increase in availability of good vegan sausages - both fancy vegetable options and fake meat ones, has been astounding. After the thought provoking Tesco advert promoting their new plant based range, showing a recipe for sausage casserole, and, my new love of Meatless Richmond Sausages, I thought I would resurrect my old favourite. Not a true casserole as it doesn't go in the oven, but a quick hearty meal none the less

I did try the Tesco Cumberland sausages, and they weren't bad, but Richmond still have it for me. Having said that, they still do go a bit soft in the sauce, I think that is just a vegan sausage "thing". So unless you don't mind a slightly softer sausage (ooer missus!) then just add them right at the very last thing and serve immediately

This is great on its own, or with jacket potato, or bread, or with my Cheezy Potato and Leek Bake, recipe


. This amount serves 2/3 people


1 tbsp olive oil

1 medium red onion, peeled and sliced

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1tsp smoked paprika

1 pinch of ground cumin

1/2 tsp dried thyme

125g mushrooms, roughly chopped

1 small red pepper, roughly chopped

1 small green pepper, roughly chopped

1 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 veg stock cube, tsp of chicken seasoning, or tsp of bouillion type stock powder

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsps sriracha hot sauce (optional)

1 tin butter beans, drained and rinsed

6 vegan sausages, plus a little extra oil for frying


Add the oil to a large pan and heat, add the chopped onions and fry for around 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the crushed garlic and cook for another 2 minutes

Add the cumin, smoked paprika and thyme to the pan and stir in, cook for a further minute, then add the mushrooms, and peppers. continue to stir and cook for another 5 minutes

The chopped tomatoes work better either squished by hand to get rid of the big lumps, or given a quick blitz with a stick blender. Add to the pan and stir in your choice of stock and plenty of black pepper. Add the butter beans, cover and cook on a low heat, stirring occasionally for another 20 minutes

Meanwhile, add a small amount of oil to a frying pan and cook the sausages until well browned all over. When cooked, cut into bite sized chunks and add to the main pan. Stir well in, add the sriracha sauce if you are using, and cook for another 5 minutes and then serve
