Cassoulet… what a satisfying and delicious pot of beans that is! And here I’ve created a vegetable cassoulet that’s as creamy as can be, and brimming with the aromas of fresh herbs and vegetables.
But to me, what makes cassoulet so special is the petite, pale-green flageolet beans. Their sweet flavor and soft texture are simply addictive. Here the tender beans are slow-simmered with a mirepoix of vegetables and served with crunchy sourdough croutons – the perfect contrast to the creamy dish.
Since this cassoulet is made without the large selection of meats that usually goes into the traditional dish, it doesn’t need to be cooked both on the stove and then in the oven. This vegetable cassoulet is simmered on the stove only, making it a much less time-consuming endeavor.
So here’s to a hearty vegetable cassoulet… a bowl full of goodness!
