Fennel Soup-Gluten Free

Cold rainy day in New York!  Soup is needed for days like these!

Fennel, is a herb that I hardly ever use. I have no idea why not. It is so healthy for you! This soup has a wonderful creamy, slightly sweet flavor that is very soothing. Plus, it doesn’t have many calories per bowl and is very filling.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 big onion, chopped

2 fennel bulbs, chopped (save the top leaves)

2 (14.4 oz) cans chicken broth (or vegetable broth) – *Check can to make sure broth is gluten-free as bouillon cubes may contain gluten!

black pepper

Directions:

  1. Saute onions with olive oil for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add fennel and saute for another 5 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth and simmer soup until fennel is soft.
  4. Puree soup in blender and then return to pot.
  5. Season with black pepper (to taste) and garnish with fennel leaves.
