A note about serious food allergies

Cassoulet is a traditional French stew originating in the southern countryside province of Languedoc. Reminiscent of the great American chili, white beans and sausage simmer in harmony alongside earthy root vegetables. A blanket of Parmesan sits atop the dish, creating warm a warm embrace of flavor. It's comforting, yet elegant, and with one bite, you'll be shouting “sacrebleu!"

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Remove stalks from fennel bulb and discard. Trim end of bulb, quarter lengthwise, remove core from each slice, and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Peel shallot and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Mince garlic.

  2. 2

    Cook the Sausage

    Place a large oven-safe pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break into small pieces with a spoon until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.

    If using ground beef add a pinch of salt and follow same instructions. If using ground turkey, add a pinch of salt and cook until no pink remains 7-9 minutes.

    Transfer to a plate.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to cook sausage to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add fennel, shallot, and carrot to hot pan and stir until coated in oil. Cover, and stir occasionally until vegetables start to brown, 4-6 minutes.

    Add garlic and stir until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.

  4. 4

    Make the Cassoulet

    Stir mirepoix-cornstach mixture to recombine and add to pan.
