Method of A Healthy Energizing Dish That Wont Spoil:
To make the stock put the chicken wings or tips in a sauce pan and cover with about 3 liters of water.Add the chopped carrot,leek,celery,onion halves and cloves,bay leaf and sprigs of thyme.
Bring slowly to the boil,then reduce the heat and simmer for about 50 minutes. Skim frequently to remove any froth from the surface of the stock.
Pass the stock through a fine sieve. If possible, line the sieve with a piece of muslin cloth or a coffee filter to obtain a clear liquid.
Discard the chicken,vegetables,herbs and spices.
Cook the carrot, turnip and potato in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes,or until tender but still crunchy.
Plunge into cold water to stop the cooking process and keep the vegetable crunchy.
Cut the green beans into six pieces and cook in boiling salted water for 4 minutes.
Drain, plunge into green color, then drain again. Add the baby peas to boiling salted water and cook for 1 minutes.
Drain, plunge into cold water then drain again.
Season the stock with salt and white pepper to taste. Add all the vegetables and reheat.
