this was another winning recipe from the food matters project.
cassoulet is a traditionally french dish, made up of beans & meat, slow cooked for hours & hours & hours. mark bittman’s food matters version lightens the dish up, using just a pound of meat for the entire dish, but adds other veggies, like zucchini, to the mix to make this a well rounded one pot meal. swapping in canned beans makes this dish a weeknight reality.
the recipe makes 6 generous servings, which we thoroughly enjoyed once for dinner with a loaf of crusty bread & for lunches for the rest of the week.
we stuck to the original recipe again this week, especially since neither of us has ever had, let alone made, cassoulet. we used a mix of turkey sausage & andouille, since our store was out of regular pork sausage.
