Thanks Uwinsc January 9, 2018 I thought this tasted ok, like the idea of doing it with sausages so might try that next time. Halved the recipe and it still easily made 3 adult portions. Really low in calories which was great. Used water instead of wine, mix of canellini and butter beans, bottled lemon juice (left out the zest) and fresh thyme. Sarah Curtis Scrafton January 6, 2018 Made this tonight with a tin of chick peas and a tin of black beans I found in the cupboard. Gorgeous. Fed 3 of us easily and I have 2 large portions frozen for lunches. Androfin January 6, 2018 Update on yesterday’s review: had 2 bowls of this yesterday and then today had 3 more portions, this time with sausages. And there’s still some bean casserole left! My partner had Quorn sausages and me and my son had regular frozen pork sausages (which kept the cost down). Some crusty bread ensured nobody left the table wanting more. Androfin January 5, 2018 Just made the Bean Casserole gift the first time…YUM! Feeling very virtuous too with all those veg and beans. My partner is a vegetarian so I made a replacement Worcestershire sauce (2 tsp HP Sauce mixed with 1 tsp of Smokey Barbecue sauce). The “serves 4” bit is, for once, not correct in a positive way…this recipe makes loads!! Will definitely do this again. Donna Walker January 3, 2018 I hate beans as much as I hate Brussels sprouts! I have the cooking thing down fine, it’s just everything else x Caroline Macfarlane January 3, 2018 Donna Walker u seen this site x Heather Westwood January 3, 2018 Fab! Thank you x Feed your family for about £20 a week. January 3, 2018 Yes , sauté the veg first then into a slow cooker but use only 400ml stock .
