2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Quick-pickle the onion

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and very thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Zest and juice the lemon.
In a small bowl, combine the onion, lemon zest, and lemon juice and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep the cassoulet ingredients

  • Trim the root end from the leek; cut the leek in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Soak the half-moons in a medium bowl of cold water, stirring occasionally to loosen any dirt, and allow the dirt to settle at the bottom. Skim the leeks from the surface of the water and pat dry.
  • Coarsely chop half the mushrooms for the cassoulet filling; thinly slice half for the cassoulet topping.
  • Rinse the white beans.


Start the cassoulet

In a medium [large] ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the leek and mirepoix, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned and starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and coarsely chopped mushrooms and cook until the tomato paste starts to caramelize, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the beans, mushroom-herb blend, and 1½ cups [3 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the liquid thickens, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the cassoulet simmers, prepare the almonds.


Prep the almonds; finish the cassoulet

  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
Top the cassoulet with the thinly sliced mushrooms and almonds and drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 4 tsp] oil. Transfer to the oven and bake until the mushroom and almond toppings are lightly browned and the sauce is bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes.
When the cassoulet is almost done, finish the salad.


Finish the parsley-onion salad

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems.
Drain the onion and return it to the bowl. Add the parsley and 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the cassoulet to individual plates, top with the parsley-onion salad, and serve.
