Start with a flavorful broth as a base and add the vegetables you have. I think cooking the aromatic vegetables in oil at the start is key to adding depth of flavor to the dish.

tyle="background-color:rgb(255,217,102); color:rgb(39,78,19)"> 

2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

3 green onions, trimmed of roots and sliced, white and tender greens

2 stalks celery, thinly sliced

1/2 cup diced fennel bulb

1 cup diced green cabbage

1 head well rinsed escarole, chopped

1 tablespoon fennel fronds

1 teaspoon dried bouquet garni or herbs of your choice

6 cups chicken broth


In a 4 quart pot, heat oil over medium high heat. Saute onion, celery and garlic until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in fennel, cabbage, and escarole coating with oil. Add broth, bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a slow simmer. Add fennel fronds and herbs. Cover and simmer 45 to 60 minutes. Best if refrigerated over night and reheated the next day. Serves 6.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
