This flavoursome, low-fat casserole freezes really well, so why not make double and freeze half for next time

I've made this a lot because it's really delicious. Excellent with bread, like the recipe says, especially homemade. I sometimes add garlic too.

This is one of those recipes that's much greater than the sum of the parts. Tasty and very filling - couldn't believe how much food you get for the calories. I'm doing the 5:2 diet and this is perfect for a fast day. I used half and half flageolet and kidney beans as didn't have any haricots, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. I recommend using proper homemade stock if you can, but would probably still be nice with a cube.

Simply delicious!!!! We are on post-Xmas diets and it is very wholesome and filling for such a low calorie/low fat recipe. I used just one tin of beans, and 850mls of stock- half vegetable, half chicken and made it with thyme.

I'm not generally a big fan of stews, but decided to try this recipe on the grounds of the overwhelmingly positive reviews it has received. Whilst it did have a nice flavour, it was a fairly standard stew and so has not made a convert of me. Or my husband, who picked out the chicken and left the rest!
