Plan for Thursday

Thursday night is the Community Unity International Christmas party. After the meeting, we have a pitch-in late supper of international dishes. I’ve been thinking about what Imma take, and I’ve decided to take a French dish: white bean cassoulet.

Naturally, I’m not going to make it like any of the recipes I’ve found for it. Here’s the plan:


  • garlic-infused olive oil
  • green onions (because I have some)
  • mushrooms (ditto)
  • carrots, cut into pieces
  • potatoes, ditto
  • canned beans, prolly navy, Great Northern and maybe garbanzo
  • herbs (bay leaves? marjoram? lemongrass?)
  • veggie bouillon/water about a cup
  • white wine

Heat oil in large skillet to medium heat. Cook onions until soft. Add veg and some bouillon. Cover and let simmer about 5 minutes. Put into slow cooker. Drain and rinse beans and add. Add herbs and a slurp of white wine. Cover and cook on low a couple of hours. If it’s too sloppy, I might throw in a handful of quick barley.
