We really liked this as a light starter for a meal. I used chicken broth instead of vegetarian, because that is what I had on hand.

Good soup. I really couldn't taste the fennel, though - didn't want a strong anise flavor, but I was hoping for just a tad more. Couldn't "recognize" the fennel.

The fennel adds such a nice flavor to the soup. For enhanced flavor, heat 2 tbs olive then saute onions, garlic, fennel and 2 more items not in recipe - 2 carrots chopped small and basil until veggies are translucent then add spinach, tomatoes and broth. I only cooked 1 hour then for the last 15 mins I added frozen tortellinis. When serving the soup, I add fresh ground pepper and crushed red pepper. My daughter likes parmesan cheese with it too.

pretty good recipe. this was the first time i cooked with fennel and i have to say i like it a lot. in the end i added sliced vegetarian hotdogs to the mix to add a different texture. i can also imagine it would be good with potatoes. i will make it again. it is a keeper.

I followed the recipe exactly, it was very quick and easy to make. I had never cooked with a fennel bulb previously, I'm glad I tried it, the flavor is mild but wonderful. This dish freezes perfectly.
