Why can’t I be a kid again???? Stew

So this is a dish made up of things I had in my fridge and freezer. It is based on a stew my mother made for us when we were kids. My mother’s recipe is with noodles, turkey hot dogs, onions and salt. It might look mushy or childish but believe me when you make this the mere smell alone will have you choose this over any fancy meal.
My version this time is with vegetarian sausages, frozen broccoli, little pasta stars, courgettes and onions. The veggie hot dogs is because I do not eat Turkey, the broccoli is because I was craving it, gluten free pasta stars because I just bought them , the courgettes because I had two left over from cooking my royal pasta dish. The funny thing is the pasta stars are apparently for kids but whatever!

For two people you need:

  • 50 g gluten free pasta stars (you can replace it with noodles or anything else you like)
  • 150 g broccoli, frozen or fresh
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 400 ml water
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 courgettes
  • 1 onion
  • 4 vegetarian hotdogs. I use Qourn Frankfurters but you can replace this with turkey hotdogs


Whatever noodle or pasta you are using, just follow the directions on how to cook it, then drain and leave to the side until it is time to add it to the casserole.

Dice the onions and courgettes into teeny tiny pieces. Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions. Add the courgettes and fry them.

Cut the hot dogs in tiny pieces and add them to the pan. Add the frozen broccoli. Add the salt and the water.

Let everything boil and leave to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Add the pasta and leave to simmer for 5 more minutes and cover the casserole. The casserole is ready to eat when there is very little liquid left.

Enjoy you brats!
