Tomato, Bean, and Sausage Sauté

This is a pretty quick and easy sausage dish inspired by some of the sausage dishes that I have encountered on my travels through Japan.  I limited the ingredients to what I know is fairly easy to get at a moment's notice in most grocery US grocery stores.


  • 8 oz sausage
    • I went with Chicken & Apple Smoked Chicken Sausage Breakfast Links
  • 200g canned whole tomatoes
  • 100g low sodium white navy beans
  • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sodium free chicken bouillon
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 50g low-moisture part-skim mozzarella

NOTE: For a slightly more authentic feel, you could make the following substitutions:

  • Replace the white navy beans with boiled soy beans.
  • Replace the sodium free chicken bouillon for Ajinomoto KK consomme granules.


  1. Place the canned tomatoes, soy sauce, chicken bouillon, salt, and pepper in a pot over medium heat. While heating, crush the tomatoes with a wooden spatula.
  2. Add sausage and navy beans to the pot and stir a few times to fully integrate the ingredients.  When everything begins to boil, cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes.
    1. I tend to gently score my sausages with a sharp knife before putting them into simmer.
  3. Open the lid and event distribute the cheese on top of the tomato and sausages, close the cover and wait minute for the cheese to melt, then remove the pot from heat and allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Serve in a bowl, optionally garnish with chopped green onions.
