    This is so simple to make, and divine to eat. My husband has now nominated this as his favourite soup. I cooked twice the amounts in the recipe so that I could freeze several portions for a quick, easy and healthy meal later. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe :-)  -  13 May 2014


    Oh wow. I have just described this recipe as heaven food to a friend. Its seriously the nicest soup I think I've ever tasted. I ended up getting over excited and putting too much water in before pureeing, but it just tastes SO good, even thinner than I would usually like. Can't wait for work this week now, just because i get to eat this soup with crusty bread every day. TRY IT!!  -  04 Mar 2015


    Absolutely delicious. The fennel flavour is subtle and not at all overpowering. Using the quantites given the soup was the perfect consistency after blending. Fabulous.  -  20 Oct 2017
