A vegetarian version of the hearty French country dish, this uses canned beans for a quick and easy one-pot. It's finished in the traditional way, with a crunchy breadcrumb and herb topping, plus nuts for extra protein.
Use any combination of canned beans available, such as red kidney, cannellini or mixed beans, to suit your preference.
It worked so well one of my guests ate so much he couldn't fit in the cheese course or the chocolate fondue with strawberries and cherries!! - 11 Aug 2013
