Take 5 the Boston Bean Co

February 15, 2021

If you’re a fan of cook books then you’ll know Mr Oliver published a few years back a book loaded with recipes that took only 5 ingredients. He subsequently went on to write 7 Ingredients. Not to be out done Slimming World produced their own book and as a starting point I have chosen for this evening “Boston Sausage & Bean Bake”.


  • 6 Linda McCartney(TM) Rosemary & Red Onions sausages, or any super low fat eg Heck Chicken etc
  • 1 can Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 carton Passata with a little water
  • 1 Sweet Potato diced
  • 1/2 Yellow sweet Pepper coarsely sliced
  • 1 medium carrot diced
  • 2 cloves of Garlic chopped
  • handful of coarsely sliced Mushrooms
  • thick slice of Swede diced
  • 11/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1tsp leaf Coriander
  • 3tsp Thyme


  1. Place all the ingredients in an oven & hob safe pot and heat on the hob until the passata begins to bubble.
  2. Adjust the heat to allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C and bake for 35 minutes until the harder vegetables are soft.
  4. Serve with an Air fried jacket Potato.

This version serves 2, for more mouths simply double up.

SYNs per portion ZERO!
