What is possibly the most amazing cool weather meal ever. Beans, meat and veggies...to me the ultimate comfort food.
G asked that I make this again soon and I can't wait.
I a make three subtle changes, which I highly recommend.
1.) Add 4 fresh sage leaves to the bouquet garni
2.) Saute beet greens or chard in olive oil until wilted and add it to the dutch oven before baking
3.) Rarely can I find duck confit at a reasonable rate so I substitute whole chicken legs.
I completed the meal with a salad of roasted beets, chevre and spinach dressed with a light white wine vinaigrette and a nice pinot noir or winter ale.
