The name of this recipe appealed to me, immediately, because I thought, it had no meat in it. I was wrong. It calls for a choice Italian sausage, bone-in pork chops, comfit duck legs or duck breasts. No, no, Mr. Bittman – not for me and I don’t believe we missed anything without the meat. I like what Mark put into it – that is Mark Bittman, the author of Food Matters. I left out the meat and will ask, “Who needed it?” This totally vegetable dish was filled with flavor and we cleaned our dishes.
We like this cassoulet and I would be happy to make this again. It was filled with veggies, which we love and the combination was one, both hubby and I enjoy. I pretty much followed the recipe but I turned it, into a soup by adding some organic vegetable broth and water. It was rich and delicious.
The Food Matters Project can be found here and we hope any Bittman fans will join right in. Cooking Bittman is interesting and tasty. You can also find the cooks and where to find their latest creations on The Food Matters site.
