A bouquet garni is a classical combination of aromatic herbs and vegetables used to flavor liquids. They can be removed easily from the liquid once they’ve given their flavor to it.
- 3 outer green leek leaves, washed
- 5 sprigs Italian parsley
- 5 sprigs thyme
- 2 bay leaves
Laying out 1 leek green, set the herbs on top and wrap in the remaining leaves to form a circular little bundle. Tie the bouquet garni securely with string.
If you decide to wrap the herbs in cheesecloth then you have a sachet.
