soup bunch
 n.— «Some cooks throw a “soup bunch” into the pot while the shank boils. Sold in predominately black neighborhood grocery stores, the bunch is an elaborate bouquet garni of mixed vegetables and aromatics for the soup pot. A typical soup bunch includes a carrot, celery, thyme, cabbage, and turnips with their greens.» —by J.M. Taylor Hoppin’ John’s Lowcountry Cooking Apr. 1, 1992. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
