There’s nothing better than kicking off your shoes, lighting a fire and tucking into a stew when it gets cold outside. We’ve developed a hearty casserole to warm the soul using our vegan sausages and deliciously healthy pearl barley. Taste all the flavours of Winter in this delicious one pot dish.


2 packs of Cauldron Vegan Frozen Mediterranean Sausages
6 shallots, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, roughly chopped
1 lemon, zested

500ml vegetable stock
2 courgettes, grated
100g kale or cavolo nero
4tsp vegan yoghurt
10g fresh parsley, finely chopped.
