This was so tasty. I used all the ingredients as listed (beef broth), plus I added dashes of celery salt after each addition into the pan. Got rid of my old Dutch oven recently, so I just transferred everything into a round bakeware dish for the oven before adding the beans and panko mixture.

I've made both the veggie and regular (with chicken sausage) version of this and both were delicious.

Don’t forget to add some salt! This was quite tasty and paired well with the baguette. I love how healthy and comforting it is!
