Yes, it's true. Consommé is a soup. It's also a broth, which can be used as a sauce. And I want you to think of light, flavorful broths as sauces, particularly where you're working with moist-heat cooking techniques like steaming. Allowing yourself to think beyond standard terms and expectations liberates you from "the rules." This recipe is an encouragement to deeply watch the pot. It does boil. And clarify. And inspire.
