Recipe by Dancer

My Dh loves fennel and when we made this he almost ate it all. Its nice with crusty bread and a small salad.

This is a very lovely soup with a beautiful delicate flavor. The tarragon coaxes out the flavor of the fennel and the turmeric gives a nice depth for a so lightly flavored soup. I didn't fortify it w/cream, it was absolutely wonderful without.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan, sweat the onions in the butter/oil for five minutes.
  2. Add the fennel and garlic and sweat gently for a further five minutes.
  3. Pour on the stock, so that it just covers the vegetables, and add the tarragon and turmeric.
  4. Season to taste.
  5. Simmer gently for half an hour, until the fennel is tender.
  6. Remove the soup from the heat and blend in blender until a smooth thick soup.
  7. Fortify with a little cream, if desired.
  8. Serve garnished with the reserved fennel leaves.
