    1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Lightly toast the fennel seed in the hot oil until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the carrots, pear, potatoes, mushrooms, curry powder and turmeric to the fennel seed; cook and stir until everything is evenly coated in oil, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the vegetable stock over the mixture. Stir the rice, flaxseed, bay leaves and parsley into the soup; bring the mixture to the boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the rice and vegetables are very tender, about 30 minutes.
    2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the jug no more than halfway. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the mixture moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot and return to heat.
    3. Stir the lemon juice and white pepper into the mixture; cook until thoroughly reheated, about 5 minutes.
