Benjamin ChristieA cassoulet is traditionally a rich, hearty stew of various meats and or beans with a mix of starchy and aromatic vegetables and herbs. Use any root vegetables you can get including parsnips, swedes, yams or even beetroot. You can obviously add other flavourings too but remember, the damper has plenty of complexity of taste.
