Default re....beans

here's a 'cassoulet' or kinda bean casserole for Julie B...there are
hundreds of them out there...perhaps one similar would meet her needs.

Yeah I know ...bread crumbs...but who says you need to make the

1-Pot: Fuss-Free Cassoulet
Yield: 6 servings


1 tbl Vegetable oil
1/2 lb Kielbasa sausage, cubed
2 x Onions, chopped
2 x Garlic cloves, minced
2 x Carrots, sliced
2 x Celery stalks, chopped
1/2 tsp Dried thyme
1/4 tsp Pepper
pinch Cloves
19 oz Canned tomatoes
3/4 cup Chicken stock
1 x Bay leaf
38 oz Canned white pea beans, drained and rinsed

----------------- TOPPING ----------------
2 tbl Butter
2 x Garlic cloves, minced
2 cup Fresh bread crumbs
2 tbl Fresh parsley, chopped

The traditional French dish takes days to prepare and contains a
generous portion of high-fat meats. By using sausage only, preparation
time, fat and calories are all cut down without sacrificing flavour.

In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausage, onions,
garlic, carrots, celery, thyme, pepper and cloves, stirring, for about
5 minutes or until onions are softened. Add tomatoes, breaking up with
fork. Add chicken stock and bay leaf; bring to boil. Add beans; reduce
heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Discard bay leaf.

[Can be prepared to this point, cooled, covered and refrigerated for up
to 1 day. Or freeze for up to 1 week; thaw in refrigerator for up to 36
hours. Add 45 minutes to 1 hour to baking time.]

Topping: In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic; cook
for about 2 minutes or until softened. Stir in bread crumbs and chopped
parsley; sprinkle over cassoulet. Bake in 350F 180C oven for about 30
minutes or until crusty and golden on top, bubbly and heated through.

It's not a question of where he grips it!
It's a simple question of weight ratios!

A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
