To save prep time, use prechopped onion, carrot, and celery, and mince the 11 garlic cloves at once; then portion as needed. Reserve the full-flavored poaching liquid, and use it as the base for a soup, to cook rice, or to stir into sauces. Bok choy, an Asian member of the cabbage family, makes this dish calcium-rich.
