Description
The Southern-French classic Cassoulet gets a radical makeover in this recipe.  Loaded with flavour, it's a rich, hearty dish that is beautiful with some good bread.  Quick to prepare, it's a new family-favourite.

The original recipe is packed with meat and fat and is cooked slowly in a special pot.  This  version uses plant-based sausages.  Alternatively, for those wanting a whole-foods plant-based meal, omit the sausages and double up the beans.
Ingredients
  • 1 large red onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 350g passata
  • 250g sweetheart cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 can/carton cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 6 plant-based sausages (those avoiding all processed foods could double up the beans instead of this)
  • 1tbsp herbes de Provence
  • 1tbsp ketchup
  • Bread
Directions
  1. If you have the chance to slice your cabbage earlier in the day and put in the fridge, it will enhance the nutrition.
  2. Slice the onion and dry fry (no oil needed).  Chop up the plant-based sausages and add to the pan.  Continue to fry.
  3. Add the garlic, cabbage and passata.  Continue to stir for several minutes.
  4. Add ketchup, herbes de Provence and beans.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes and serve with bread.

Sweet Paprika Beans
A warming, filling pulse-rich main meal with quinoa, this has become a family favourite in our household.

With pulses (beans, lentils etc.,) being one of the healthiest, cheapest foods on earth, it's great to cook a dish that can be prepared in 10 minutes and then left to gently simmer for half an hour before quickly stirring in the quinoa before eating.  To make it even quicker you could use frozen bell peppers that have already been chopped up.

Thai Red Curry
Packed with vegetables, this is a creamy, fragrant Thai curry with tofu and potato.  Delicious with rice - or if you're avoiding rice it would also work well with naan bread or even on its own with extra potato.  Add spinach for some more greenery, if you are not prone to kidney stones.
