Improvisation is the mother of cooking invention.
Earlier this week, I was challenged to make an unexpected, relatively fast dinner given about 10 minutes to shop in a grocery store – and no, this wasn’t a cooking competition, it was a real life situation!
Anyway, I decided to make cassoulet and cheat a little by buying some boiled meat (tinned, no less) and combining that with haricot beans, mustard and a variety of fresh spicy and other sausages.
One other challenge – there was no usual big pot or Dutch oven to use!
So…. I made cassoulet in a wok. Felt almost blasphemous but you know what? It turned out very well.
