Prepare this high-fiber meatless main dish in an oven or slow cooker according to your timetable. Because it reheats well, the cassoulet is a good candidate to make a day or two in advance.

Ingredients

1
(15.5-oz.) can butter beans, drained
1
(15.5-oz.) can great northern beans, drained
1
(15-oz.) can garbanzo beans (Chickpeas), drained
1

1
cup finely chopped carrots
1
cup chopped onions
2
garlic cloves, minced
2
teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1
teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1
bay leaf

Directions

  • 1 In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover; cook on high setting for 30 minutes.
  • 2 Reduce heat to low. Cook 5 to 6 hours or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaf.
Tips  

To bake in oven, combine ingredients in ungreased 2-quart casserole. Bake at 350°F. for 35 to 45 minutes.

Thyme, a member of the mint family, is related to basil, marjoram and oregano. The stems of the plant are twiglike with small oval leaves. For most dishes, strip leaves from stems, though whole sprigs can be used in soups and stews if they're removed before serving. Thyme blends well with other herbs, enhancing but not overpowering them. The slightly pungent, spicy flavor is especially good with dried bean recipes. Dried thyme is available in whole-leaf or ground versions.
