Fennel bulbs are sliced and cooked in butter and vegetable stock to create this light, flavourful summer soup.
Tasty and easy to make. I made as directed and took the suggestion from another review to add cubed potatoes. I added two dollops of sour cream when cool and a dash of onion powder. Then I blended in food processor for a fancier soup. However, it was fine just as made from the stove. I thought the fronds would make a nice garnish but found them too tough and lacking the fennel flavor. This is a great alternative from the same old, same old. - 19 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
So easy and delicious. I get organic fruits/vegs delivered to my door, and my box contained fennel this week. I have never cooked with it before and decided to try this recipe. I only used 1 fennel bulb, and added cubed potato to bulk it up. I pureed some of it so that it had a creamy texture but still contained chunks of fennel and potato. I just ate 3 bowls.....I will make this again! - 03 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I never knew how much I loved fennel until I tried this soup! It has a delicious, mild flavor; the flavor of the ingredients are really allowed to come through. - 02 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
