The smell of gunpowder hangs in the air, a roaring fire takes the edge off the chill, while excited people gaze in wonder at an ink black sky. It can only mean one thing; Bonfire Night and Autumn, with all that season, has to offer.

Fancy making some Spicy Beans And Bangers?

How To Make Spicy Beans And Bangers:

This November 5th enjoy a taste explosion of your very own with these spicy beans and bangers on a Bannisters potato.

  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 215g can chick peas, drained and rinsed

  • 400g cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  2. Add the carrot, celery and pepper to the pan and fry until soft, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garlic and spices and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, puree, drained chick peas and beans, with 100ml water, then bring the mixture to the boil. Cover and simmer for 20 mins.
  4. Meanwhile cook the chipolata sausages under a medium grill, turning until they are browned on all sides, cool slightly.
  5. Uncover the beans and simmer uncovered for the final 5 mins, until sauce has thickened.
  6. Serve the beans spooned into hot potatoes with the sausages alongside.

Fun Idea:

For added spooky fun, cut the sausages to make fingers and put a flaked almond at the end of each to look like a witches’ fingernail. Stick these into each of the bean-filled potatoes.
