A consomme is made by adding a mixture of ground meats or mouselin with Mirepoix, tomatoes, and egg whites into either bouillon or stock.

Moosewood Cookbook Review – A Vegetarian Must-Have

I was introduced to this gem of a cookbook many years ago at a friend’s house. I love to browse through people’s cookbook collections – there’s always at least a recipe or two that’s just begging to be discovered – and I happened upon a simple looking book.
