Mirepoix is a mix of three simple vegetables that add so much flavour to so many dishes.
Mirepoix is a finely diced mixture of carrots, celery and onions. It is often sweated off in the first stages of a recipe to enhance the flavour of sauces, soups, stews and numerous other dishes.
Although usually finely diced, some recipes, such as a stock recipe might call for ‘mirepoix roughly chopped’. ‘Mirepoix au gras’ is simply mirepoix with meat and usually refers to the addition of bacon or ham.
How to Make Mirepoix
- Dice the vegetables into uniform pieces.
- Use as per your recipe requires.
