Total time: 2 hours, 25 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6

Light vegetable stock

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups finely diced leeks, white part only (about 2 to 3)

1 cup finely diced carrots (about 3 medium)

1 cup finely diced celery (about 2 stalks)

3 whole cloves garlic, peeled

6 peppercorns

1 bay leaf

2 sprigs parsley

2 sprigs fennel

1 sprig thyme

1. Heat the oil in a tall 8-quart stockpot over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, carrots and celery and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add the garlic, peppercorns, bay leaf, parsley, fennel and thyme. Add 10 cups cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat, cover and cook at a hard simmer 35 minutes.

3. Remove the pot from the heat. Strain the stock through a fine mesh strainer, gently pressing the vegetables to extract liquid. Discard the vegetables. You should have 9 cups of stock.


2 fennel bulbs (about 1 1/2 pounds)

2 large onions (about 1 1/2 pounds)

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup light dry white wine

9 cups light vegetable stock

2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste

2 tablespoons Armagnac, optional

8 ( 1/4 -inch thick) slices baguette

1 large clove garlic, halved
