I thought this soup was absolutely lovely. I read several reviews prior to making the recipe and made some minor changes based on those reviews and on what I had available to me. I doubled the recipe so that I could freeze it for a busy day. I used 4 cloves of garlic (sauteed with the fennel and onion) 4 cups of fresh cooked white cannellini beans, 2 fresh tomatoes diced, 6 fresh sprigs of thyme (removed them when I removed the bay leaf), and 3 teaspoons of salt and a couple of dashes of cayenne. I left all other ingredients the same (doubled). I had to substitute to use what I had on hand, but it turned out delicious. I had no concerns with the amount of broth. We actually prefer brothy soups to cream soups and stews, so it was perfect. The flavors were terrific and we will make this again.
