A mainstay of the family table - this is the sort of dish we'd cook up in batches when we had very little children, happy in the knowledge that we'd covered all bases (not one but six vegetables! All different coloured! No Tiny Teddies!), blitzing a bowlful for the baby, mixing some with pasta for the toddler and dishing up ours with a baked potato and a hefty glass of red.  We oven roast the carrots and celery, tossed with olive oil and salt until golden and tender.  We cook onion and garlic with diced beef and then add veal stock, tomatoes, herbs and lemon zest and cook until the beef is soft.  We finish the dish with green peas.
