What a lovely cosy Autumn feel this dish has to it! A rich tomato sauce warmed with just a hint of chilli, satisfying sausages and melt in the mouth butter beans - plenty of vegetables in the sauce but paired with some vibrant green vegetables this dish is a winner with adults and kids alike.

So thinking about Sausage & Bean Hot Pot ...
Butter Beans are legumes and they are packed with protein and fibre. They are also low in calories and fat, and are a good source of vitamins and minerals.
Sausages are a source of protein but they are also high in fat. They are a form of processed meat and should only be eaten in moderation; no more than 70g of red/processed meat per day for adults.
Tomatoes are really good for us containing a wide range of vitamins and minerals.

A traffic light system is used on nutrition labels to make it easier to see which foods and drinks are lower in calories, fat, sugar and salt. Try and choose more ‘greens’ and ‘ambers’ and fewer ‘reds’, and stick to smaller portions of ‘reds’.
Just because a recipe or a food has a red traffic light doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat it. Understanding why a food or recipe might have a red light can be helpful. For example oily fish is high in total fat and so any recipe containing oily fish is likely to be ‘red’ for fat. But it is recommended that we eat oily fish at least once a week because the type of fat it contains is beneficial for our health.
% Reference Intakes are also shown. Reference Intakes are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet (based on an average-sized woman doing an average amount of physical activity). Most children will require less than these Reference Intakes. The contribution of one serving of a food or drink to the Reference Intake for each nutrient is expressed as a percentage.
