This is the perfect winter dish. Now that the evenings are drawing in, and the temperature is dropping, nothing beats a warm, hearty dinner. Even if your short on time, this recipe is relatively quick and easy. I would say around 45 minutes maximum, including prep work.
I originally saw a similar recipe on Rosie's blog. Her photos looked so good, almost good enough to eat, and so I immediately sent the link to Stew. We gave the dish a little twist, and made it more our own, by sort of following a couple of recipes and putting them all together.
Packed full of vegetables, you could easily make this dish vegan, by not having the sausages. As this cassoulet is filling in itself, we served with a slice or two of focaccia bread, but it would also go great with rice. However, depending on your need of carbs and the size of your appetite, you may wish to eat it on it's own as it's full of tasty and healthy beans. A great substitute for the usual potatoes/pasta etc.
