Hearty sausage cassoulet – Thermomix recipe


Hearty sausage cassoulet – Thermomix recipe

Cassoulet is probably the best French ‘peasant’ dish you can ever come across.

There is no dish in South West France that is more iconic. Some serve it with duck, pork, sausages – there are so many versions, it’s impossible to try just one!

It’s a loose, almost soup-like stew of beans and meat – it’s perfect for cold winter family dinners and can be equally served to impress your guests at your next dinner party.

This Thermomix version might not be the original cassoulet from South West France but it’s more than good enough for my family and I on this frosty Tuesday evening! And it only took me 10 minutes to put together!
