  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C and line a large baking tray with foil. Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak 8 in cold water.
  2. Cut each sausage into 4 pieces and put in a large bowl with the onion and pepper chunks. Add 1 tbsp each paprika and oregano, 1 crushed garlic clove and 2 tbsp oil. Season, then toss to coat gently.
  3. Thread the sausages and veg onto the skewers, then transfer to the tray. Bake for 25-30 mins, turning halfway if starting to catch, until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a lidded pan over a medium heat and fry the diced onion for 5 mins, stirring, until softened. Add the remaining paprika, oregano, garlic and tomato purée, and cook for 2 mins or until aromatic.
  5. Add the rice, stir to coat, then add the stock; cover and bring to the boil. Once bubbling, reduce to a simmer for 12-15 mins until the water is absorbed. Set aside for 5-10 mins, covered, until needed.
  6. Carefully fluff up the rice with a fork and stir through the coriander. Serve with the sausage skewers.
