  1. Grill or gently fry 6 Quorn sausages until golden brown, then set aside. Meanwhile, put 1 tbsp olive oil into a pan and gently cook 1 roughly chopped onion, 1 seeded and sliced red chilli and 2 seeded and diced red peppers, covered, for 6-7 minutes or until tender.
  2. Stir in a 400g can plum tomatoes, 300ml vegetable stock, made with a stock cube, and 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste. Season. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat a little. Half-cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

I loved this! I made it with my favourite vegan sausages. The only thing I did differently was that I only put half the mixture in the food processor then added it back to the pan. That way it was a bit chunky but you also had a nice soupy consistency. Really delicious! - 08 Sep 2015
