Carl's 'all-change casserole'

Carl's daughter has an announcement – she doesn't want to eat animals anymore. But with a little help from Tesco's plant-based ranges, they can still enjoy his famous sausage casserole with a simple swap - perfect for Veganuary too.

  1. Heat the oil in a large, shallow casserole dish set over a medium heat. Add the bangers and cook for 3-5 mins until lightly browned all over. Remove from the dish and set aside.
  2. Add the onion to the dish and cook for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the garlic, cumin and coriander and cook for 1 min more.
  3. Add the tomatoes, beans and 350ml boiling water. Stir in the stock pot and the mango chutney. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 mins.
  4. Return the sausages to the dish along with the squash; cover and cook for 10-15 mins more until the squash is cooked through. Stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
