Did you ever notice that the best sauces, stews and soups usually start out with the following?

  • onions
  • carrots
  • celery

This mixture, which is the basic foundation for LOTS of Becky’s Healthy Kitchen recipes is actually from the French culinary tradition. I know, you are surprised I would recommend using anything from the French tradition (can you say TONS of cream and butter!?).

So, to make this triad of veggie goodness, all you need to do is follow this ratio:


That is 2 parts onion to 1 part carrot and 1 part celery.

Wow, wasn’t that easy?
