Simple Summery Garlic Sausage Stir Fry

Some days, after uni or work, I don't want to cook... but I want to eat something nice. For days like this, I always do stir fry. They always fill you up, they're bursting with flavour, they're low calorie so you don't feel heavy and they're so diverse in how you can make them. Stir fry is traditionally an East Asian dish however you'll find in this recipe I leaned into Italian flavours. I also used sausages in this so that I wouldn't have to season much beyond salt and plenty of freshly cracked black pepper. I personally used Heck Chicken Italiana sausages as I think its seasoning lends perfectly to this dish. If I were to make it again I'd probably add mushrooms & top with oven-roasted cherry tomatoes, but I had restrictions this time which meant I couldn't. That's the beauty of cooking though, you don't have to follow a recipe to the letter. They're more like guidelines.



​1 Red Pepper

1 Yellow Pepper

1 Medium Leek

350g(ish) Sausage of your choice

30g Basil

3 Garlic Cloves

1 Red Chilli

2 Tbsp Virgin Olive Oil


1) Slice all your veg to roughly the same size, mince your garlic and chilli, and cut your sausage up into bite-sized chunks.

2) Set a large frying pan or wok to high heat you can and add your olive oil.

3) Add your sausage to the pan and fry until it starts to brown around 5 - 8 minutes.

4) Once the sausage is browned evenly, throw in all your veg, garlic & chilli, also season with salt and plenty of freshly cracked black pepper. Fry for 10-12 minutes stirring every couple of minutes until the veg has softened.

5) Tear up and stir in the basil leaves and stir them in then serve on its own or with tortillas or rice or mashed potatoes.
