I Cook It - You Name It
I have no name for this - but I tell you one thing - it was damn good.
At first I was thinking cassoulette. Then I thought to myself "who am I kidding." Real chefs would castrate me for my attempt at such a classic dish for everyday cooking.
So, keeping with my "Cooking Myself Skinny" theme - I thought of this. The only problem is I have no name for it. You do me a favor. I'll tell you how I cooked it and you tell me what I should call it.
Okay, let's go.
So I used turkey smoked sausage and hot turkey Italian sausage. I browned those and removed them from the pan. I sauteed carrots, onions, celery, garlic, and green bell pepper until soft. I added flour to make a roux and then I added chicken stock to form the sauce. I seasoned with dried rosemary, thyme, and basil. Then I threw in some canned white navy beans. I put the whole mixture into a bowl that I made out of puff pastry (the not so healthy part) and I ate myself in happy oblivious.
See the process below.
Remember, I need a name...help me, please? Who knows, if I pick the name you give me I just may come and cook this in person for you!
