Cassoulet, a hearty white bean casserole, is a French original. Its savory flavor comes from herbes de Provence, a mixture of dried thyme, basil, rosemary and lavender.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a large skillet, sauté onion, carrot and potato in olive oil over medium-high heat 5 minutes. Add garlic, herbes de Provence, salt and pepper; sauté another minute. Combine vegetables with bay leaf, beans, tomatoes and vegetable broth in a large, lightly oiled casserole dish. Bake uncovered 20 minutes.
  2. To make bread crumb topping, combine olive oil, bread, parsley and garlic in a food processor; puree on high until finely crumbled.
  3. Remove cassoulet from oven and take out bay leaf. Raise oven temperature to 400°F. Sprinkle half the bread crumbs on top; bake another 15 minutes. Remove cassoulet from oven; stir bread crumb topping into beans. Top with remaining bread crumbs. Bake another 15 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
