Ingredients

Cassoulet

  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans cannellini beans, drained
  • 1 (15-oz.) can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (15-oz.) can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 (4.5-oz.) jar whole mushrooms, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 2 bay leaves

Topping

  • 2 cups cubed (1-inch) French bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In small saucepan, combine broth, garlic and cornstarch; blend well. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in wine.
  • 2
    In large bowl, combine broth mixture and all remaining cassoulet ingredients; stir to combine. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole.
  • 3
    Bake at 350°F. for 40 minutes. Remove from oven; remove bay leaves. Top with bread cubes; drizzle with melted butter. Return to oven; bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until bread is toasted.

  • Cassoulet is a classic recipe from the Languedoc region of France. White beans and sausages, pork, and duck or goose are combined in a covered crock and slow-cooked. Our version contains kidney beans instead of meat.
  • This vegetarian recipe makes an excellent main dish. One serving provides as much protein and iron as a three-ounce serving of cooked lean beef.
  • Add several links of vegetarian brown-and-serve breakfast links, sliced into 1/4-inch pieces, to this cassoulet.
  • Round out this meal with red wine, a mixed green salad tossed with diced beets, marinated artichoke hearts, toasted walnuts and vinaigrette, and an assortment of French cheeses. Fresh pears make an elegant dessert.
