Vegetarian Cassoulet

» Crescent Dragonwagon, Passionate Vegetarian.  — Outstanding.

I would serve this to anyone, anywhere. Here are my suggestions:

This dish takes about 4 hours: 1-hour quick soak; 1/2 hour of rest while the beans simmer; 1/2 hour to 1 hour of active cooking; and then 1 1/2 hours for it to bake..

Did you use 10 oz of one kind of soysage, *and* the faux bacon? Or did you leave out the bacon as well?

The first time I made it I used 2 kinds of soysage and left the canadian bacon out because I couldn't find any. We didn't miss it, and now I just use the Italian-style soysage (for the spicing) and it seems like plenty.

Yeah, I agree -- you definitely need the Italian-style meat. Gives it zing.

I liked this, but I'm unlikely to make it again, because, while it was good, it wasn't SO delicious that it was worth the time commitment to make it.

This recipe makes such a large amount that I can easily freeze 2/3 - 3/4 of it to get 3 or 4 meals out of it. It's a great treat to warm some of this up when I don't want to spend a whole lot of time cooking, but I want a nice hearty meal. When I think of it that way, it's easily worth it (to me) to spend the time making it.
