the onion in the slow cooker you need to fry it along with the celery over a low heat in a frying pan with a small amount of the rapeseed oil until it turns soft and starts to cook. This should take around 5 minutes, once done add to the slow cooker.
chopped carrots to the same frying pan that the onions were in for about a minute then add these to the slow cooker.
rest of the oil into the pan and add your sausages, you can cut them in half either vertically or horizontally before adding them to the pan. Brown them all over then transfer them to the slow cooker, add the chopped sweet potato and the tin of tomatoes as well.
pan back on the heat and add 250ml of water, add in the thyme, rosemary, stock cube and tomato puree. Stir them all together until the stock cube has broken down. When ready add these to the slow cooker. Add pepper and if you want some cayenne pepper if you want a kick.
to cook for at least 4 hours on a high heat. 10 minutes before serving add in the beans to warm them up. The beans are optional but means the serving size will go from 4 portions to 8 portions, they are also high in fibre so really important for a balanced diet.
however you want, we did it with spaghetti this time but we think that it would suit a baked potato the best smothered with lots of cheddar.
