  • 7 quart pan, heavy bottomed with lid


  • 2 cloves garlic chopped not minced
  • 2-3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch leeks green parts only, chopped
  • 1 handful green onions green parts only, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 4 medium carrots chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 large parsnip peeled, chopped into 1" rounds, large parts quartered
  • 1 medium celery rib No more than 1 rib, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • a sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 TBSP sea salt
  • 1 small handful black peppercorns
  • 10-16 cups water enough to cover veggies by 2"

Optional/Alternative Ingredients

  • 2 medium russet potatoes quartered
  • 1 bulb fennel bulb sliced into 1/8", greens chopped
  • 1 small handful green beans (too many is not low FODMAP)
  • 1 small to medium tomato seeded & roughly chopped
  • 1-2 cloves
  • 1 small or half star anise pod (I almost always add this)


  • Heat pan on medium heat. When warm, add olive oil. Cook until shimmering.
  • Lower heat and add garlic. Good until fragrant and remove at the very first sight of browning.
  • Turn heat back up to medium. Toss in a handful of the leeks, and a handful of the green onions. Saute for about 3 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Stir.
  • Pour in fresh cold water until veggies are covered by 2". Some will float so eyeball it.
  • Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Add water if level drops below the veggies.
  • Scoop out the veggies and herbs and discard (or eat the carrots, they are freakin' yummy, but they'll be uber-hot!)
  • Strain into large measuring cup or storage containers. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Store in the fridge for 3 days. Store in air-tight freezer containers for up to 6 months.
