The Clevedon's Spanish Veggie Sausages

Aren’t sausage links the perfect, portable treat? There are loads of options in supermarkets these days, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you want to try a winning combo, Good Housekeeping found the Co-op Spicy Whirl Corn Sausages were a clear winner. They said of the sausages, “These vibrantly coloured spiral pork sausages are filled with sweetcorn, roasted red and green peppers and chilli. Testers enjoyed the peppery and subtly smoky aroma, reminding them of a chorizo. There's the ideal amount of heat from the chilli too, with the peppers adding sweet and smoky flavours.” We love how they paired it with a simple rocket salad to complement the flavours.

However, you don’t have to be a meat eater to enjoy a good sausage. In fact, plant-based diets are on the rise globally. If you’d like to try to make a similar link at home that’s suitable for vegetarians, why not try this recipe from our head chef:
