For cold weather comfort, nothing beats a warm and hearty stew, such as this one that's chock full of vegetables and given heft with ground beef. Besides the usual aromatics (garlic and onion, the essential flavor builders) and the typical canned whole peeled tomatoes (crush them with your hands as you add them to the pot), you'll find zucchini, green peas, and fresh mushrooms. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand.

  • 1/2 zucchini (small pieces)
