      Wonderful soup! I used celery too and also the pesto (delish!). I subbed in chick peas - didn't have the cannellini beans. I also used an emersion blender just before adding the beans for a creamier soup. Thanks for sharing!

      What a wonderful winter warming soup! Really nice combination of flavours and I thought the pesto was a great and very worthwhile addition. I love fennel but didn't have any so went with celery but used double the amount of fennel seeds.
