The new Unox chipolata sausages consist of more than 30% of various vegetables, legumes and/or cheese. This makes the sausages extra tasty and contains less meat. The chipolata beef sausages with bell pepper and kidney beans go perfectly with this deliciously spicy couscous, and the fresh yoghurt sauce completes the dish! This is delicious for summer evenings on the bbq! If you have leftovers, it may taste even better the day after for lunch. The sausages are available at the Jumbo (Dutch supermarket).
