One of the many variants of bottled white French beans

Use this recipe as a starting point for your imagination!

We had a small ciabatta loaf, pack of Toulouse sausages from Gourmet sausage maker - Bexley and a large bottle of French flageolet beans from our summer holiday. The rest of the ingredients were odds and ends.

I find the French bottled mogettes à la paysanne to be a little cloying so I tried to adjust this with the creme fraiche. Serving with the steamed broccoli was almost like a palate cleaner. The result was excellent and will be made again.

Method

  1. Add the olive oil and black pepper to a dutch oven, when hot add the chopped onions and the halved Toulouse sausages and saute for 4 minutes
  2. Stir in the crushed garlic and saute for a minute or so
  3. Tip in the mogettes and the Taco seasoning and tomato puree and mix well
  4. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to very low and simmer for about 40 minutes. As you can get quite a lot of steam from this you can adjust the consistency to your liking by simmering covered or with the lid half on.
  5. When there is about 5 minutes left to go, begin steaming the broccoli.
  6. Stir in the port and creme fraiche and mix well. Bring back to a simmer and remove from the heat. Ensure the mixture does not boil

Serving suggestions

Serve with steamed broccoli and sliced ciabatta bread

Variations

Odd vegetables can be mixed in too. I found a spare tomato chopped it up and added it to the mix
