Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare to the end of step 3 the day before, keeping the filling and crumble topping separately in the fridge. Allow an extra 5-10 minutes’ oven time when cooking from chilled.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes, covered, over a medium-low heat until softened. Stir in the cabbage, leeks and garlic, replace the lid and cook, covered, for a further 8 minutes until almost tender, stirring halfway.
  2. Uncover and stir in the flour. Cook out for 1-2 minutes, stirring. Gradually add the stock, little by little, to thicken the mixture. Stir in the cream, mustard and cannellini beans. Bring up to a simmer then remove from the heat. Season to taste and transfer to a medium-large ovenproof dish (about 1.8 litre).
  3. For the crumble, put the flour in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt then rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the thyme and grated cheese with a good grinding of black pepper.
  4. Scatter the crumble mixture over the veg and bean filling. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the topping is crisp and golden. Scatter over the extra thyme leaves and serve.
