  1. Heat half the oil in a lidded saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onions and fry for 6 mins. Stir in the garlic and fry for 2 mins. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the remaining oil and the frozen sausages and cook for 5 mins until browned all over.
  3. Return the onion and garlic to the pan with the tomatoes and mustard. Add the stock, season with pepper and cook over a medium heat for 10 mins, adding the beans after 5 mins.
  4. Stir through the spring greens, cover and cook for 4-5 mins more until the sausages are cooked through and the spring greens are tender. Serve with mash, if you like.

Tip: Freeze any spare portions of the stew. Defrost and reheat to piping hot before serving.
