Casserole Off - Mean Beans Cassoulet.

ScoutyPat
ScoutyPat1 stone

415g tin mixed beans

1 whole medium leek, thinly sliced

5 cloves of garlic, very finely chopped

1 large onion, very finely chopped

1 large bell pepper (I had an orange one), chopped

4 large tomatoes - diced (and keep all juice)

20g butter

50ml good rapeseed oil

Salt and pepper

Take a good heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter, add the oil, then all of the other ingredients except the beans. Soften the ingredients very gently over a low heat for about 30 minutes, until they are very soft and caramelised. Add the Beans and some hot water as needed and stir through. Warm the whole dish through to gently bubbling over a low heat, simmer for a further 10 minutes, season with salt and pepper to taste.

I stirred through some diced beetroot and gorgonzola cheese prior to serving.

It serves 2 and was very tasty...

I am discovering a new love for cheese as have previously avoided due to the fat content, but on the new low carb plan.... cheese is my new friend

Definitely ! Oh just be careful with the grapes and apple, full of sugar (albeit natural)

I tell you what else I've discovered and always avoided because of the fat content, avocado ! OMG ! It's divine, can't believe I've lived without it all this time! :-) x

Another thing I'm enjoying is anti pasti with olives, peppadews and sundried tomatoes, and MORE cheese! :-) x lol

Ummm... olives, sundried tomatoes.... there may be things I can replace the grapes and apples with. Although slices of apple have currently replaced biscuits with cheese

Celery and cucumber are great for that, or even babygem lettuce boats, theyre stronger than they look :-) x

They are good and joined in the nhs plan, but I think they are finding the low carb harder to deal with. But today was the first time they had potatoes all week, so I'm slowly educating them

You didn't mention small peppers stuffed with cheese, also in the anti pasta section. Delicious.

Ooohhhhhh, are they are the little sweet spicy ones filled with pepper? I think I have seen, but walked past them before.
