Slow Cooked Sticky Sausage Stew (Vegetarian)

I made a sausage stew the other week in the slow cooker and it went quite well, but I think adding the yoghurt/cream was a mistake. It's not the type of thing to make creamy, it needs to be rich and dark to really work.

Sticky Sausage Stew

slow cooked sausage


  • handful of mushrooms
  • half a leek
  • knob of butter
  • carrots, sugar snaps, and green beans (or any other vegetables lying around)
  • half a butternut squash
  • 6 meat-free sausages (I used Quorn but Cauldron Lincolnshire would work well too)
  • 200ml of hot water
  • 2 tablespoons of mango chutney
  • 2 tablespoons of gravy browning
  1. Sweat the chopped mushrooms and leek down in the knob of butter. Transfer to the slow-cooker (I have a swizzy slow-cooker that allows the pot to be used on the hob directly).
  2. Add the chopped vegetables and the water, stir in and leave for two hours on high.
  3. After two hours add the mango chutney, stir and cover for another hour on high.
  4. Add the sausages chopped into half or thirds and leave for another hour on medium.
  5. Stir in the gravy granules twenty minutes before serving.
  6. Serve with crusty bread and proper butter.

    Hi Chick a Dee (which is rather appropriate for what I'm going to say).

    I don't know if you heard about the crash on the M6 that involved about 7000 hens (in crates) and the attempted rescue from some local animal activists (or just people who wanted to help for a better description).

    Well, on reading one one or two comments about people wanting to go vegetarian, I have given your web details so that they can look you up for vegetarian recipes. I said they'd read a lot of interesting things while they were there 🙂
