A Simple Broth
Yesterday I made a quick batch of turkey and collard green enchiladas for dinner. There wasn't much in the fridge, and I was sick with a bad cold, so it had to be quick and easy. But this isn't about the enchiladas. I poached the turkey in about six cups of water, adding the chopped up collards to cook alongside. A little bit of salt. This is about the water that turned into the most delicious broth. Reminded me of an excellent wonton soup I used to get at this Chinese restaurant in the West Village. Such good broth! Full of hearty green-ness! Today I threw some stale bread in it, with some cheese and olive oil and there was lunch. So simple. So good.
