Quick Cassoulet to celebrate Bastille Day

Think French feijoada. Cassoulet is a very rustic dish from Southern France that is made with sausage, different pieces of pork and white beans. They even use duck sometimes. It’s cook slowly in a clay pot with wine and crushed tomatoes. Sounds good? Well, it takes better.

With Bastille Day coming up, we were on a quest to find a dairy free, gluten free French recipe. Not an easy task for sure. What we love about cassoulet is that you can adjust it depending on what you have on the fridge and if you don’t have 4 hours to cook it low and slow, no worries. We came up with a quick version that tastes just as comforting. We hope you enjoy it.

Quick Cassoulet – Ingredients:
  • 2 Cups of pork loin, cubed
  • ¼ Cup ground pork sausage
  • ¼ Cup diced ham
  • 3/4 Cup of diced onions
  • 4 Cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 Pinch of all spice, salt, pepper
  • 2 Small carrots, diced
  • ½ Cup French red wine
  • ¼ Cup green pepper, diced
  • 2 Cups of veggie broth
  • 1 Sprig of thyme
  • ½ Cup crush tomatoes
  • 3 Cups of white beans
  • Olive oil
  1. Sauté the onions, peppers and garlic. Add the sausage, the pork and ham. Cook for a few minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for 50 minutes. Make sure the broth covers the ingredients at least an inch. Add water if necessary.
  3. Adjust salt and make sure the stew thickens. Otherwise, cook for a bit longer.
