Easy Mushroom Cassoulet

Easy Mushroom Cassoulet is the comforting and cozy meatless meal that I crave. Cassoulet is a classic French stew of white beans and traditionally with some sort of hearty meat like sausage or duck legs. It’s rich, soul warming, and perfect for a cozy night in on a winter day.

I’ve been living up to my New Years resolution with doing one meatless meal a week and this just seemed like the ultimate meatless meal. I love mushrooms because they are so meaty, earthy, and filling by themselves so you don’t miss the meat.

This recipe is an easier version of cassoulet. It’s one pot and is ready in under 30 minutes. I cheated and used canned beans which makes it so quick.

A little known fact about myself that I got my start in the wine industry with Wente Vineyards. I worked at the restaurant after culinary school and that’s where I fell in love with the food and wine industry as a whole. This is a shout out to my favorite winery. And yes, I totally recommend pairing with their Morning Fog Chardonnay!

Wine Pairing Recommendation: A nice balanced chardonnay like Wente’s Morning Fog Chardonnay.
