Vegan Italian Sausage and Chunky Vegetable Hash

So we already know I like carbs. In particular I like fried potato. They make everything better. I’ve been craving a delicious, warm, cozy and cheap meal like this. Let’s face it, we need it with this “second winter” and Brexit.

If you’re looking for a quick yet satisfying meal this is definitely a dish to consider. The crispy potatoes combined with colourful mediterranean vegetables and flavours have made this a culinary staple for me. It’s great for using up those leftover vegetables in your fridge. Best of all, this easy and cheap stovetop meal serves 4 for less than £6.50 in 30 minutes! It’s also great for meal prep lunches for most of the week.


4 Vegan Italian style sausages cut into slices
2 Medium potatoes – skin on and diced into 2cm chunks
1 Leek – thoroughly washed and sliced
1 pepper – Chopped into 2cm chunks
1 clove garlic – minced
1tsp dried oregano
10-15 black olives
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Chopped parsley to finish


  1. Place a large frying pan or skillet on a medium high heat and add a little olive oil. Allow the oil to heat and then add the diced potatoes.
  2. Cook the potatoes evenly while stirring occasionally for 15 minutes until cooked through and browned on all sides.
  3. When the potatoes are tender and crispy remove them from the heat. Decant and place aside.
  4. Next on a medium heat fry the sausage until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Place aside with the potatoes.
  5. Keeping the pan on a medium-high heat add a little more oil to the pan and add the chopped peppers. Allow to soften for 1 minute. Next fry the leek and cook for a further 5 minutes stirring occasionally so they don’t stick. Add the garlic and stir.
  6. Add the cooked potatoes and sausage back into the pan along with the olives and the oregano. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve the hash garnished with the freshly chopped parsley.
