    Julesong's Note:

    I love fennel, I love soup… so when this soup was recently featured on FoodTV's "Party Starters" prepared by Edison Mays, I snagged the recipe from the website and adapted it to my liking.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Slice the fennel bulbs thinly; chop the fennel fronds and set them aside to use later.
    2. 2
      In a large heavy sauce pot over medium temperature, heat the olive oil; add the sliced fennel bulb, thyme, and butter.
    3. 3
      Saute, stirring occasionally, until fennel is golden brown and caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the white wine, garlic, stock, and small white beans and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      (At this point, if you'd like a creamy soup you can take out half of the soup and puree it in a blender, then add it back into the pot.).
    6. 6
      Season soup to taste with sea salt and white pepper.
    7. 7
      Garnish with a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a bit of chopped fennel frond, and serve.
    8. 8
      Note: more beans can be added to the soup, if you like (a couple of cups worth), or you can use other kinds of beans or a combination. And yes, the amounts are correct in the recipe - it's a gallon of stock. This makes a lotta soup!

      I did puree this, and I think that was a mistake. The flavour of the fennel got completely lost in the white beans. Getting started, I was afraid this would be bland, so I added an onion while cooking the fennel and tripled the garlic. Still bland. I threw in a jar of roasted red peppers and that added some colour and flavour. Sprinkling with grated parmesan also helped with flavour and presentation. Still, I think maybe fennel just can't stand up to being mixed up with party-killing white beans. Next time, I'd cut down on the beans and leave them whole.

      This is yummy! I think the proportions are off, tho? I saw 1 gallon of stock & cut the recipe down. With 6c stock & 1/2c white wine, I had planty of liquid for the 2nd caramelized fennel bulb. I liked that this was easy - I set the fennel on low to caramelize while I did other stuff then it was fast to finish it off. Love the flavor; very filling. A wonderful soup - thank you!
