Like other respondents, I did not have fennel. So my rating is based on that. Very little flavor. If you are looking for a flavorful, hearty soup, try the Two Old Queens soup recipe on recipezaar.

This was great. Made as written, but I didn't have any fennel.

reviewed for RSC 9. This is an excellent tasting soup. Very hearty and filling. The aromas filled the house. DH and DS loved it as did the teachers from work who I served it to the next day. We are soup people in my family and each week I make a huge pot of soup for the week. This will become a regular. I like the ease of prep, the fact most (except fennel) are regular staples in myhouse and that there is some room for variations. I can see adding barley to this soup for a more stoup (stewy) type texture. I did add more potatoes and an additional can of beans as my family love veggies. Thank you

This soup is so good even my DH loved it & he's a confirmed meat & potatoes man. Easy to prepare & worth every minute of the time. I'v made it twice in the last 3 wks. Did not use the fennel bulbs either time. And cut the taters ( I used the small white ones) in 8ths. Just quartered makes the chunks too big I think. I made it once with low sod. broth & once with regular broth, I thought it needed th 1 t. of salt regardless or which broth was used. Thanks for the recipe Ready Set Cook.

This soup lives up to its name! It has a lot of rich flavor and it is really filling. Good luck in the contest.

This was a delicious and hearty soup - perfect for cold winter suppers! I made some cheese-beer bread to go with it. It also made excellent leftovers, the soup flavors mingled nicely. Thanks for posting!
