A quick and tasty sauce that works really beautifully with pasta.  If you like rich, hearty flavours, this one's for you.  Porcini and tomato puree blend together to give a sweet, sharp, umami taste.  

Cavolo nero provides a fantastic array of nutrients and borlotti beans are loaded with fibre to keep your inner-bugs happy.  We top this off with some garlic and red onion to boost the phytonutrients for a nutritious and delicious sauce.

Cassoulet
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.
