Prepare the herbal consommé.

Combine all the ingredients in a nonreactive pot. Cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to a light simmer. Cover tightly. Simmer very slowly for 35 minutes. Turn off the heat, keep the cover on, and cool completely. Strain the broth carefully through a fine strainer; do not press down on the vegetables. Set aside.

Next, make the ragout.

Cook each vegetable separately in small amounts of the consommé until tender. Cool. Arrange the vegetables decoratively in individual shallow soup plates. Spoon the heated herbal consommé over the vegetables, season with pepper, and sprinkle with chervil.
