White Bean Cassoulet--- -Crock Pot

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups onions, chopped
1 1/2 cups carrots, diagonally cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
1 cup parsnips, diagonally cut into 1/2 inch thick slices (you sub other root vegetables)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (16 ounce) cans white beans, rinsed & drained (or 3-4 cups of your home cooked beans
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated (if you are serving vegans, you can sub nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons butter or earth balance, melted, or olive oil
1 lb veggie Italian sausage, chopped (I love the Upton Naturals)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley

1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, carrot slices, parsnip slices and garlic. Cover and cook 5 minutes; stirring occassionaly.
2. Place cooked mixture into the slow cooker. Add beans and next 6 ingrediants (through Bay leaf). Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours or until vegetables are tender. Remove Bay leaf.
3. Saute sausage in a bit of olive oil until browned; if you have never used a meatfree sausage, you will notice that there is not all of the nasty grease found in meat.
4. Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and melted butter in a small bowl; toss with a fork until moist. Stir breadcrumb mixture and cooked sausage into bean mixture; sprinkle with parsley.
