This is seriously one of my favorite soups ever! I found it back this spring when I was doing Weight Watchers, and immediately fell in love with it. Even though its called a “cassoulet”, it hardly resembles the hearty delicious artery clogging deliciousness I made before. This dish is bright and flavorful, light yet filling.
On another, completely different but slightly related topic – how the heck do you feed a toddler soup?! Ladybug can’t quite work the spoon by herself, but heaven help you if you try and do it for her! I ended up just straining all the “soup” away and giving her the tidbits inside, but that totally defeats the purpose of having soup! This dilemma will have to be worked out soon, because fall is fast approaching (Can you believe its the middle of August already?!) and we will be having lots and lots of delicious hearty soups soon!
