A bouquet garni is a classical combination of aromatic herbs and vegetables used to flavor liquids; because the herbs and vegetables are bundled with string, they can be removed easily from the liquid once they’ve given their flavor to it.

Lay out 1 leek green. Place the herbs on top and wrap in the remaining leaves to form a circular bundle. Tie the bouquet garni securely with string.<
