Why I Love This Recipe

I love the idea of a good fish soup. My favorite is Manhattan style fish or clam chowder. However, I'm also a big fan of brothy soups with chunks of vegetables.

With the abundance of leeks in my garden (which over-wintered from last year) I have wonderful fresh ingredients to play with.

This soup is great with a hearty loaf of bread. Pictured with my soup is a loaf of Pugliese from Rose Levy Beranbaum's book: "The Bread Bible" I have modified her recipe (I'm all about mods) to include a whole wheat (instead of white flour) biga and fresh ground whole wheat flour instead of the duran flour as called for in her recipe.

I also got my first opportunity to use the Brotform (bread raising basket) that I received for my birthday.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 box vegetable stock (I like Wolfgang Puck's)
1 cup chopped carrots
2 leeks sliced (white part only)
1/4 cabbage, sliced
1/2 lb rock fish fillet (or similar)
splash wine (I used apple cider wine)
1 tsp thyme
salt & pepper to taste
