Tomato and coconut cassoulet

Tomato and coconut cassoulet

Packed to the rafters with tomatoes, haricot beans, ginger, coconut milk, chilli and sourdough bread, Anna Jones’ tomato and coconut cassoulet is pretty far removed from the traditional version of this French classic, but I love it.

To be honest, I was a bit baffled by the inclusion of some of the ingredients, but the addition of coconut milk is minimal (just 4 tablespoons), and, as Anna remarks in her introduction to the dish: ‘Don’t be put off by the coconut milk – it adds a gentle creamy note and brings everything together.’ And the chilli and ginger smacks you around the lips, albeit subtly.

And an added bonus is that it’s reasonable quick to throw together too.

The verdict from the husband: ‘Mmmm, not bad.’ Not bad, it’s bloomin’ lovely!
