I already had some roasted garlic in the fridge and I had leeks and fennel!!! I added 10 extra cloves which was a total of 3 heads. Also added 3 cups more broth as it seemed pretty thick - maybe my vegies were the xlarge size??? but awesome flavor and will definitely make again
I roasted all the garlic I had in the house, which was one very large head. Used 2 Fennel and 3 Leeks and made the rest as directed. I used my immersion blender right in the pot. It was a great soup for the cold autumn day. Very healthy and robust -- being all vegetarian -- and I'll make it again. Thanks!
Super simple and delicious
A delicious and hearty soup with all of my favourite things! LOVED the combination of the garlic with the fennel, leeks and potatoes. My fennel fronds were a bit ragged and weary, so I garnished my soup with dried herbs, and FORGOT to add the yoghurt until after taking the photos, sorry! Made for Thyme and Bay in the French Forum and a keeper for me, thanks Mike!:-)
Hi Mikey, this is the first time I have cooked with fennel, so when I saw your recipe with leek and potato I thought I would give it a go. It's a very nice soup but I have to confess that I didn't put all the Garlic in as it was a bit much for DH he tells me that he hates garlic, but if I sneek a bit in he won't notice, I think it would have been better with all the garlic as I love it but needs must got to keep them happy. I blended half and left the other half chunky. A very nice soup I liked it but next time I WILL use all the garlic. Made for herb of the month. (February bay)
