Veganomicon - Leek and Bean Cassoulet with Biscuits

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.

    I made this too and it was yummy! I didn’t have whole carrots, so I used shredded instead and it worked out PERFECTLY. I also overcooked my potatoes, but it was stil fantastic. This is my favorite recipe so far from Veganomicon!

    That looks sooooo good! I’ve got to get this book. I think I’m the only one on the planet that doesn’t own it. I read on a couple of other blogs that some weren’t overly impressed with this dish, so it’s good to hear something positive, because this is something I’m sure I would love.

    Thanks for the comments! The only thing I would revise about this dish is to chop the leeks a little bit more. My husband commented that it made the dish seem a little bit stringy.

        Now that I have this recipe on my mind again, I’m going to have to put it on the menu! Leeks are in season right now and I am always searching for ways to use them.

    I thought about getting the Veganomicon the other day, but I was afraid that too many of the recipes would just be filler. How do you like the book?
