Cassoulet-Style Been and Sausage Stew

As a child I’ve didn’t appreciate beans. I totally underestimated them. They have so much fiber and iron hidden in there!

Mild,spiced or zesty, in Greece there is an abundant of sausages, all from different place or Greece. And as a grownup I love a good bean and sausage marriage. Simple and sophisticated.

Cassoulet is a beautiful dish slowly cooked with beans and sausage and topped with crunchy breadcrumbs. So fragrant, with the flavors married so perfectly together! If you are in a hurry, like me, you would love this version of Cassoulet!
