This started with me thinking I had nothing for dinner. After a quick search of my freezer and pantry I made this dish. Sausage, beans, shallots, and some herbs and you’re good to go. This was quick and easy for a simple dinner for two, not to mention delicious and filling.

Servings 2 people


  • 1 can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 sausages  recommend: Toulouse
  • 2 shallots sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary  chopped
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar 
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Remove the sausages from its casings and break into pieces.
  • Put the sausage into a cold frying pan and turn on to medium heat. This was the sausage will render its fat which is used for frying.
  • Add the shallots
  • Once the shallots have softened, add the cannellini beans and rosemary. Mix well.
  • Finish with the sherry vinegar.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste if needed.


If you don’t have sherry vinegar, white wine vinegar can be used. 
I add salt and pepper at the end as the beans and sausages have salt, so with the sausage I use, I find I don’t need to add salt or pepper. 
My favourite Toulouse sausage is from DuBreton. Check out the link below.
