Really tasty - everyone loved it. Even better when some celery and leek added. Its become a firm family favourite. Can be spiced up too if needed as an accompaniment to Morrocan or Indian food. Any left over can be used as a base for soup the following day - add stock and either add thickener or liquidise some and leave some rustic chunks, served with crusty bread makes a warnming lunch.

I was looking for a veg recipe with savoy cabbage - only had tin flageolet beans and left over cooked sausages (94% meat) , still delicious. I am gluten free, so used my stock cubes and can't wait to try again. Will be prepared and use smoked bacon and try the haricot beans.

A good side dish that certainly makes the veggies more interesting.

This is a very nice dish. I added a bit of ground cumin. Had surprise guests so served it with oven baked salmon filet, they loved it.
