Veggie Bean Burger with Cannellini Beans Recipe

Being a vegetarian doesn't have to equate with eating bland food. Since marrying Lulu, I've learned many dishes that are just as nutritious (and probably healthier) as meat dishes, without sacrificing flavor. This dish is a shining example. I used a few pantry ingredients such as dried cannellini beans, seasoned croutons and a lot of herbs and prepared white bean burgers.

Pair them with a yogurt sauce and you'll have a delicious meal.

Vegetarian Cassoulet Recipe

01.12.11 by Jackie

During our recent trip to Paris, I noticed "cassoulet maison" being the recurring specialty dish appearing on many brasserie menus. Cassoulet is a traditional French casserole dish originating in the South of France. The dish consists of several layers meat and cannellini beans.  My husband Lulu being a vegetarian and I wanted him to be able to enjoy the wonderful flavors of cassoulet. I made a meat-less equivalent, which makes a perfect complete meal for vegetarians thanks to the hearty white beans. I don't think I would make this dish often because it's quite labor intensive, but Lulu liked this comfort food so much that I might just make the effort. I'm sure he'll appreciate this dish even more when I make it.

For a contrast in texture, I served the vegetarian cassoulet as a layered nacho bean dish, using blue corn tortilla chips. Lulu loved it and even commented that "vegetarian cassoulet is so flavorful, I don't understand why one would ruin it by adding meat!" Isn't my husband funny?
