Apple & Meat Free Sausage Stew



  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil (or spray oil) in a large saucepan and gently fry the garlic, onions, celery, carrots and apple slices. Cook for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the flour (I used spelt) and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the apple juice and stock into the pan. Add the sausages (which you can brown beforehand in another frying pan), sage and thyme and bring to the boil, stirring all the time. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, add a little extra stock if required.
  3. Serve with the crème fraiche spooned over and sprinkled with the parsley.
  4. Enjoy with a rustic loaf!


*The second time I made this recipe I swapped the celery for cherry tomatoes and asparagus (as pictured!)
