So simple and so tasty. Vegan so I used sundried tomatoes instead of bacon and good olive oil instead of butter. I also soaked my own haricot beans, as nicer when they dont come out of a tin. We ate it with freshly baked bread and olive oil.

Very nice, made a few substitutes - missed out the Bacon, used butter beans instead of haricot beans, veg instead of chicken stock & added 1/2 a pot of Creme Fraiche. Would definitely make again.

This is simple and delicious. You could serve it with almost anything but I had it with lamb steaks which worked really well.

Very easy and quick to prepare. I use olive oil and fennel seeds instead of butter and have also used chorizo instead of bacon. Works wonderful! Also a glass of white wine before the stock. Can even add smoked or white fish (passed in the oven for 5' and flaked) at the end. Once you've tried once the variations seems to be endless.

Delicious! I used swiss chard as that's what I had in and onion. Was really tasty. I didn't use the bacon and didn't miss it.

I just had this for "lunch in a hurry" and it was delicious! I added strips of chicken with the bacon and carrots so it was a complete one-pot meal. Highly recommendable.

I've made it on a regular basis for about a year and it's always great, never boring. Generally it is the main and I make potato rösti or potato cake to go with it. Even better with some celery. Sometimes I freeze the leftover, for busy days.

I made this dish last night for a dinner party for 12 people - everyone absolutely loved it - I tripled the recipe but as I had used a very large cabbage - there was lots left in the pan - so today I have fried some and had with pickle for lunch and will make soup with the rest. I served it with fillet of beef, Healthy dauphinoise potatoes recipe and a sylabub, cheese board, coffee & chilli chocolate.
