    From Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa), great, hearty, vegetarian soup. My husband, who won't eat meatless meals, raves about this soup.

      There really is no question this is a five star soup, it's really delicious and hearty! I am on Weight Watchers so I used Fat Free half & half instead of the cream. I agree with the previous poster that this soup can be halved due to the huge pot I ended up with since I made the whole thing! For a half portion I would use 3 lbs of potatoes, 1 1/2 large Spanish onions and one large fennel bulb. If you make bacon as a topper you can put your slices in the oven and bake them in a small rectangular pan along with the potatoes, I did 6 strips at 400 degrees for 17 minutes and it was perfect! I will use fat free shredded cheddar but my family will use regular cheese and of course the bacon on top. Perfect fall meal when paired with a nice loaf of fresh baked bread and a green salad!

      This was yummy. I cut the recipe in half and used one fennel bulb that we got from our CSA. I also added some cooked potato chunks after blending the soup. Also didn't have cream and just used milk, but that was fine. And of course, topped it with cheese and bacon. What's not to like about bacon! Husband and both boys really liked this soup.
