Garbure (Winter Time country Vegie Soup)
Cook's Notes: Adding garlic to hot oil gives a burnt taste on the palate.
Adding salt to cooked vegetables causes them to sweat and have no color.
Celery leaves break down in the soup and give off an amazing aroma.
Tip: Build soup in layers in no particular order. Chef recommends adding vegetables in
the following sequence: celery, carrots, turnips, potatoes and finally cabbage.
