Tarbais bean substitute for cassoule - fabes de la Granja?

jerico | Dec 26, 2011 11:08 AM

Hello all -

I was just rushing through the market looking for various ingredients for cassoulet, which I am planning on making for the first time. I grabbed a bag of beans that I mistook for Tarbais beans - they are actually fabes de la Granja (I misread the "Fabada" written in fancy script on the label as "Tarbais" - too much wine for Xmas, it seems!).

Would they be an acceptable substitute for the Tarbais beans? They weren't cheap!

TIA

Justin
