Quorn sausages with a medley of garden veg and Turmeric  

Quorn sausages with a medley of garden veg and Turmeric


Turmeric is the new superfood! shown to help avoid cancers and other serious diseases that result from gene mutation. Asian people have been shown to have a much lower occurence of these diseases thought to be partly because they eat a lot of Turmeric in their curries.(see http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/can-turmeric-prevent-or-cure-disease/ and BBC.co.uk/'Trust me, I'm a Doctor' series ) 
But some people don't like curry, so I have experimented with other ways of using it - it does need to be cooked in with food rather than taken as a supplement.
I made this recipe with Quorn Chorizo-type sausages, which are quite spicy, so again, if you really don't like spice, just use any ordinary sausages, vegetarian or otherwise. The veggies were what I had in the garden in September; but you could use any left over veggies in the fridge, as long as you have some onions and tomatoes!
Serves one hungry person or two not-so hungry;
Ingredients; one large or 2 small onions, roughly chopped
1 large or 2 medium courgettes, thickly sliced
half a small sweet potato or 1 large carrot, finely sliced
1 red pepper, 5 runner or French beans, sliced
Tender-stem broccoli florets or other greens
several fesh cherry tomatoes, or 4 large ones
1 tablespoon Turmeric powder, a sprinkle of salt 
2 Quorn Chorizo-style (or any sausages plus a small amount of chopped chorizo, if you like paprika)

Method; Fry the onions and tumeric in olive oil until just begining to brown, then add the sausages, sweet potato or carrot, courgettes and other veggies that may take longer to cook. After about 10 minutes add the sliced beans, broccoli florets or kale/spinach. 
Lastly, when the sausages are done,  add the tomatoes - same halved and some whole if cherry tomatoes roughly chopped if large tomatoes. finish with some roughly chopped parsely or other soft herbs like Basil, Chervil, mint.
(The chorizo sausages will have let out a paprika infused oil which will nicely season everything, so you won't need a lot of salt)
Eat with some nice fresh crusty bread.
