  • Greens of 1 leek, well washed
  • 1 sprig parsley
  • 1 fennel frond
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup white wine, preferably Chablis


  1. Make a bouquet garni: Cut a piece of kitchen twine about 8 inches long, and tie together leek greens, parsley, fennel, bay leaves, and thyme in a small bundle.

  2. In a large saucepan, combine bouquet garni, 9 cups water, and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 35 minutes. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated for up to 3 days and frozen for up to 3 months.

  3. Just before using, strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
