Fennel Soup

Serves: 2
Cooking time: 1 hour



  1. In a large pan, sweat the onions in the butter/oil for five minutes.
  2. Add the fennel and galic and sweat gently for a further five minutes.
  3. Pour on the stock, so that it just covers the vegetables, and add the tarragon and turmeric. Season to taste.
  4. Simmer gently for half an hour, until the fennel is tender.
  5. Remove the soup from the heat and liquidise into a smooth thick soup. Fortify with a little cream, if desired.
  6. Serve garnished with the reserved fennel leaves.
