Sausage, Leek And Butterbean Cassoulet

Cassoulet has kind of a bad name because, let’s face it, pre made out of the can it really is rancid!
I saw this recipe on the YouTube channel of Jamie Oliver, called ‘FoodTube’. It’s a recipe from the guys at I love the recipes these guys do, they make simple, quick and delicious recipes.

I tried this recipe this afternoon because I wanted to try this one for a long time. It turned out AMAZING! I know most people say they hate beans, but these beans are actually pretty good. They especially taste nice in combination with the other ingredients. So here is the recipe:

serves 2

  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 leeks, washed and finely sliced
  • sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 can/jar of butterbeans, drained
  • 1 dollop of crème fraîche (± 120 gr)
  • 1 tablespoon of jarred horseradish with cream (or less, do this to taste because not all people love horseradish)
  • 2 chipolata sausages
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper


  • Put the sausages under a hot grill or cook in the pan if you don’t have a grill
  • Heat up some oil in a large pan and sweat the leeks for 3 minutes
  • Season the leeks with salt and pepper, then add the garlic and thyme. Sweat this for another 2-3 minutes
  • Add the butterbeans, crème fraîche and horseradish and let everything warm through
  • Serve the cassoulet when the sausage is ready
