I was so excited to get Veganomicon as a Christmas gift (thanks Dad!) this year. Since I already had 2 big leeks in my refrigerator and some potatoes, I decided to give the Cassoulet a try, and it is yummy! I made the biscuits with half unbleached flour, half whole wheat pasty flour and it worked just fine. I accidentally overcooked the potatoes just a bit but made up for it by not adding them to the dish until just before putting it in the oven. The carrots, on the other hand, never quite got done so I think I’ll pre-steam them a bit next time. But overall, it’s a warm, delicious comforting stew, so I give it a thumbs up! If you want to make this recipe, you’ll just have to go buy the book!
Here’s what the bubbling dish looked like just out of the oven! Can’t you just smell it? It did bubble over a little while baking but I put a cookie sheet on the bottom rack to catch the drips.
