Suppengrün is a German term which refers to a bunch of herbs and vegetables which is used as the basic ingredients for making or cooking soups and sometimes stews (Eintopf) in Germany. Suppengrün is mostly composed of bunch of Knollensellerie (Celery root), Mohren (Carrots) and Lauch/Porree (Leeks), but sometimes stalks of Petersilie (Parsley) are also added.

These herbs and vegetables are tied together and sold as a bunch and is always available in weekend markets and supermarkets in Germany.

Suppengrün which literally means "soup greens" is also known in cooking terms as Bouquet garni.
