Kick your soups and sauces up a notch with “Aromatics.” Aromatics are a mix of vegetables and herbs sautéed in a bit of oil or fat and are used as the base for many dishes. They are perfect for making rich, flavorful soups and sauces. Every culture has their own version but the one I use most often is the French variant called “mirepoix.” Mirepoix is a mixture of celery, carrot, and onion that is sautéed in oil with herbs until the onion is translucent. Simple and delicious, mirepoix is the perfect addition to Fall and Winter soups. It is made with a minimum of 4 ingredients but you can add any other herbs and spices to it to suit whatever dish you plan to add the mirepoix to. You can even enjoy this as a side dish.


  • 1 large onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 2 Tbsp oil ( I use sunflower or olive oil)


Step 1

Dice the vegetables.

Step 2

Add to skillet and sauté in oil on medium heat until the onion is translucent.

Step 3

Add to your soup, entree, etc.
