Recipe Fact
Cassoulet is a classic French recipe featuring white beans and a variety of meats, poultry and sausage. Our version calls only for turkey, but sliced smoked sausage can be added to the recipe.
Ingredient Info
The tomatoes and salt are added at the end of the cooking time because the acid in the tomatoes and the sodium in the salt can prevent the beans from cooking completely.
Serving Suggestion
Serve this hearty bean and turkey stew with focaccia and a green salad dressed with red wine vinaigrette.
