    HollyGolightly's Note:

    from Gourmet Magazine, December 2003. Very rich - small servings are quite appropriate. The use of FF half and half reduces it to a mere 1 WW point per serving.

      I had much more fennel than the recipe asked for, about 1lb, and wanted to use it all. As a result, the bisque was a bit thick and I added more stock (chicken stock), and I also needed a bit more salt. I also did not have fat-free half-and-half, so I went by recommendation on resipezaar and made the mixture by using milk and melted butter. So my bisque was probably richer than yours, but you can't spoil a soup by adding butter, so the end result was very good! Thank you!

      I'm so happy I found this recipe! I just made it for my lunch and it is fantastic! It takes just minutes to throw together and smells great while it's simmering. My only regret is that I didn't double or triple the recipe, because I would like to have a big pot of it left for the rest of the week! Thank you for posting HollyGolightly! (Oh, and with only 1 ww pt, how can you go wrong?!).
