Method

  1. Bring the beans to boil in a saucepan of cold water, simmer for 5 minutes, take off heat and cover tightly. Leave for 2 hours.
  2. Drain the beans, return to pan, cover with fresh cold water and add the herb bundle and vegetable quarters. Bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour until tender.
  3. Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a casserole and fry the chopped onion and celery until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, sugar and half the tarragon. Season.
  4. Drain beans, retaining 1.2 litres/2 pints of liquid. Discard veg and herbs. Stir 600ml/1 pint of the liquid into the tomato mixture and simmer, half-covered, for 30 minutes. Toss the squash, carrot and celeriac chunks in 5 tablespoons of oil. Season and roast in a tray for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove vegetables and reduce heat to 180C/Gas 4/fan oven 160C. Stir beans, vegetables, mustard and half the parsley into the casserole. Add liquid if needed to make the mixture nicely moist. Check seasoning. Turn into a wide baking dish. (You can prepare to this stage the day before. Cool, cover and refrigerate. Next day, if the beans have absorbed too much liquid, moisten with bean liquid or stock.)
  6. Mix the breadcrumbs with the remaining parsley and tarragon. Scatter over and drizzle with remaining oil. Bake for 50 minutes. (Add an extra 10 minutes if making ahead.) Serve from the dish.

Your blog is very helpful. You do have a great list of themes for children parties. I think the only missing here is the ideas of having a food catering service, since food is important in any kind of parties marketing articles

I roasted the veg as directed, but put everything else in the pan at the same time then added the roast beg and removed the herb bundle - the original recipe was way to faffing for me. Just served in bowls, no topping. easily the most delicious veg casserole I have made yet. Really really enjoyed it. Delicious.

Nice. Made with with tinned beans and stock powder. Would add just a little chorizo for non veggies.

recipe difficult to follow.

fresh herbs really make all the difference. If i did it again, I'd do the beans from dry rather than a tin as the stock would have been better (as i only did the bouquet in the beans and water for 20 mins as used a tin of beans)

Bit of a hassle to prepare, and for some reason the veg didn't soften enough in the oven so some of the carrots were rather crunchy! I used tinned beans and didn't use celeriac because I don't like it much. The overall flavour was very good, and my kids quite liked it. I'll try making it again but I'll just turn up my oven next time to get the veg well roasted!

Yummy, full of flavour, I too used tinned beans and good vegetable stock, the flavours were delicious...I didn't have a caserole large enough for it though...it makes loads!

This is really tasty. I made it easier by using a stock cube and canned beans and just what veg I'd got in.

Extremely tasty! But what hassle preparing it!! I would just add organic veg stock cube instead of making it myself. I also used organic tinned haricot beans.
